[Mongrel] mongrel install on win32 XP problems

I can't get mongrel installed on a Win XP.  I keep getting some unknown 
error with this "win32-service-0.5.2".  While it states results are 
logged, the file is empty - not much help.  I even tried complete 
uninstall of ruby and reinstalled ruby 1.8.5-21.  But no luck.

Oddly, I had no problem installing earlier on a Win 2K machine.  Is 
there something special about XP?

here is output from...

gem install mongrel --include-dependencies

result is...

 43. Cancel installation

Building native extensions.  This could take a while...

ERROR:  While executing gem ... (RuntimeError)
    ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
Gem files will remain installed in 
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/win32-service-0.5.2 for inspection.
