Installed sequel gem okay but mysql throws up this error when i try to
install.

C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\ruby_test\rub
y_test>igem install mysql
Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
ERROR:  Error installing mysql:
        ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

"C:/Program Files/IronRuby 1.1/bin/ir.exe" extconf.rb
extconf.rb:99: syntax error, unexpected end of file, expecting `end'



Gem files will remain installed in C:/Program Files/IronRuby
1.1/Lib/ruby/gems/1
.9.1/gems/mysql-2.8.1 for inspection.
Results logged to C:/Program Files/IronRuby

.8.1/ext/mysql_api/gem_make.out

C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\ruby_test\rub
y_test>

I would prefer to use the ruby gems as I'm using ironruby to generate
the GUI front end for data entry.

any help ?
