My pleasure! I hope others will find the guide helpful. Pleas feel  
free to link to the post and publicize it any way you see fit.

As for the cucumber executables (cucumber & cucumber.bat), or any gem  
that installs executable commands, these files are installed by the  
gem command, by default, in the same directory as the ruby executable.  
Perhaps some combination of setting GEM_HOME and GEM_PATH could allow  
them to be installed elsewhere? My RubyGems-foo is not yet advanced  

I would hate for this to be a manual process for every gem install,  
every time you rebuild IronRuby. I'm open to suggestions on automating  
this, and ammending the post.
