There should be a devkit for Rubyists on Windows who need to build gems.

Looks like you can get it from here rubyinstaller.org/downloads

If you have difficulty, there appear to be more detailed installation
instructions at

some explanation for the reasoning behind the DevKit, and workarounds for
various issues you might have.
