[Ironruby-core] Failure in library/ftools/makedirs_spec.rb

FileUtils.rm_rf("target") is a platform independent way. It is also ok, because FileUtils is used by MSpec itself. It doesn't fail in SNAP because SNAP does a tfpt treeclean -delete between each run.

This test fails the second time I run it. I have to then manually delete the makedirs_test folder that is created. The test tries to do system("rmdir makedirs_test/second_dir"), but that fails since "/" is used. How come its not failing in Snap? What is a platform-independent way of deleting a folder hierarchy?

Parameter format not correct - "second_dir".
The directory is not empty.
