[Ironruby-core] HOME env variable required

I checked out r116 from SVN into a new clean folder.  This is what I got:

 

D:\dev\ruby\ironruby\head>rake compile

(in D:/dev/ruby/ironruby/head)

rake aborted!

private method `gsub' called for nil:NilClass

D:/dev/ruby/ironruby/head/rakefile:15

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

 

Taking a look at the rakefile, 

 

SPEC_HOME = ENV['HOME'].gsub('\\', '/') + '/dev'

 

So the problem is that I don't have a HOME variable set.  Am I unusual in
this respect?  Do most people have this set on their Windows machines by
default?

Cheers,

Pete
