Yeah, I'm having some problems installing too... I can do the compiling, 
I'll figure it out, but I can't figure out how I get the tools needed to do 
it, the win32 readme said I needed these:

    Note: building ruby requires following commands.
     * nmake
     * cl
     * lib
     * dumpbin

I have nmake, but how do I acquire the others? Google isn't helping me.
