Hi!

I can access the same environment Sirisha used.

I also made some "upgrades" there, without success. The output of 'gem 
env':

====================
RubyGems Environment:
  - RUBYGEMS VERSION: 1.3.6
  - RUBY VERSION: 1.8.7 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 72) [i386-mswin32]
  - INSTALLATION DIRECTORY: d:/Ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8
  - RUBY EXECUTABLE: d:/Ruby/bin/ruby.exe
  - EXECUTABLE DIRECTORY: d:/Ruby/bin
  - RUBYGEMS PLATFORMS:
    - ruby
    - x86-mswin32-60
  - GEM PATHS:
     - d:/Ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8
     - d:/profiles/v-zpenzeli/.gem/ruby/1.8
  - GEM CONFIGURATION:
     - :update_sources => true
     - :verbose => true
     - :benchmark => false
     - :backtrace => false
     - :bulk_threshold => 1000
  - REMOTE SOURCES:
     - http://rubygems.org/
======================

The interesting thing is, that rake complains about missing Rakefile... 
and indeed, the Rakefile is not under ../lib but under 
../libxml-ruby-1.1.3-x86-mswin32-60 - I'm getting clueless... :(

Zoltan
