So I'd like to know how to compile ruby-postgres under Windows using 
Cygwin. Has anyone done it befeore? I've installed Ruby, Cygwin and I've 
downloaded ruby-postgres.tar.gz I don't know how to compile it under 
Windows :-)
Is it possible to connect from Windows to PostgreSQL (working on linux) 
without usign DBI?
