[Ironruby-core] Did Something Changed Again in Spec...

When the -S support gets checked in, we shouldn't need copying files and so on. Again dev.bat IS NOT NEEDED for anyone who doesn't develop IronRuby itself, it is only needed to use the IronRuby sources to build IronRuby.

It is expected that dev.bat won't be found unless you add dev.bat to the path. We don't plan on changing that since we don't want to mess with peoples' paths from the git repo.

Okay that worked out but I am still not comfortable copying files and renaming them to batch files and putting them in the bin directory of the IronRuby folder. Also switching back and forth between the dev.bat and console. Also, cmd console is not able to find dev.bat from anywhere so I have to manually execute it from the folder that contains dev.bat.

I am willing to learn IronRuby and spend countless hours using this cool dynamic language. But I am afraid people are just going to GIVE UP trying to solve these configuration issues. Setting paths, copying and renaming their batch files to ispec whatever...

I am not trying to put down IronRuby but sorry this is not going to work in the real world.
