[Ironruby-core] Building IronRuby

Can you try command line? From Merlin\Main\Languages\Ruby, run "set MERLIN_ROOT=Path\To\Merlin\Main", then run "rake compile". I will try to have SpecSharp.targets moved in the next couple of pushes.

Tomas: Do we still need the second copy of SpecSharp.targets in Merlin/Main/Languages/Ruby? Also, can I delete IronRuby.sln (leaving only Ruby.sln). If we don't need the SpecSharp.targets, I'll move it from Support back to Main, delete the one in Ruby and update references.

I've just gotten the latest ironruby bits from github and cannot
build. Using Merlin\Main\Languagues\Ruby\IronRuby.sln:

  * Can't open the Microsoft.Scripting project because it imports from
"Merlin\Main\Support\SpecSharp.targets" which is not in the repo.
  * Cryptographic failures when building because
"Support\MSSharedLibKey.snk" does not exist.

Removing the import statement from
and creating a fake SNK file in the appropriate directory lets me get
further, but I still can't build:

  * 'IronRuby.Compiler.Methods' is inaccessible due to its protection
leve Merlin\Main\Languages\Ruby\ClassInitGenerator\ReflectionCacheGenerator.cs  29      77

  * 'IronRuby.Runtime.Calls.BlockDispatcher' does not contain a
definition for 'MaxBlockArity'  Merlin\Main\Languages\Ruby\ClassInitGenerator\ReflectionCacheGenerator.cs       102     59

Basically a bunch of internal definitions look like they should be
public. Am I missing something or did a bad commit slip through?
