Hoe just sits on top of rake and generates your gemspec (and a bunch  
of tasks). There isn't really anything for hoe to do for extensions  
(tho suggestions are welcome). So, almost the same way you'd do it via  
a plain gem:

   Hoe.new('blah', Blah::VERSION) do |p|
     p.spec_extras[:extensions] = ["extconf.rb"] # or whatever style  
extension
   end
