How do I 'compile' the win32ole module and incorporate it with ruby?

I downloaded win32ole-0.4.0.zip, mswin32-ruby-odbc.zip and
ruby-odbc-0.94.zip but I need to 'make' them?

What software do I need? (I don't particularly want to use cygwin as I want
to only use software that runs directly on Windows), that is why I
downloaded the complete windows version of Ruby.
