I don't know if that's the reason, but I was running this all in MSYS
(just to keep it completely separated from cygwin so that I wouldn't run 
the wrong ruby binary). I only remember setting the PATH to
$prefix/bin/ruby ($prefix being where Ruby was installed).

This might be included in MSYS, in case you haven't installed it
already. It should be there since the machine I tested this on had no
other dev. tools (except cygwin's env. which was completely separated)
and I had no problem compiling this AFAIR.
