Are you jumping to Ruby 1.7.x for the next Windows installer or going with
Inquiring minds want to know!
My plan (bearing in mind the adage that “Man Plans, God Laughs”) is to
have both 1.6.7 and 1.7 available. I’m working on a new way of putting
distributions together that should make it MUCH faster and easier
to put new distros together in the future. The first couple will
be a little lean and probably a little rough, but the framework
is in place so that it will just keep getting faster and faster
Now, I am having some specific problems at the moment that any
generous folks could help me out with:
* zlib: I compiled the library by hand, but now ruby-zlib complains of a syntax error in zlib.c line 93 'type'. * GDBM: I need a MS compilable version. The gnuwin version that I found on the net only has gdbm.dll, and no .lib. I could hand compile from the source version (as I did with zlib), but the prospect of doing so with *every* stinkin' package that comes up is not appealing. Ideas and links are more than welcome.
