Installing a build system for Java applications on a non-Java Ruby. Hmmmm..

You know, I'd use JRuby for that. You know, it being Java and all.

You could also submit a bug to BuildR, as their Windows instructions
seem outdated (gem install will select a gem automagically, and their
gemspec seems to be buggered).

Yeah, it requires the tracking skills of an Allan Quartermain to find
the instructions, indeed.
