1. Use the correct linker flag `-L/path/to/librubys.a/' and look
   if there is a lib named libcygwin-ruby16.a, isn't the name of
   the import lib librubys.a or was it changed since 1.6.5 and 1.6.6?
2. use `my' ruby-1.6.5 package which is available at this URI:
   http://familiehaase.de/cywgin/ruby/ and installs the lib and
   headers and dll in `cygwin-usual' places (/usr/local/lib/ruby/...,
   /usr/local/bin)
3. Build ruby yourself:
   ./configure --enable-shared
   make
   make test
   make install
