Are you using the vc2003 I sent to you? adding the dependency is easy,
but we need to provide the binary gem too.

so win32-service and win32-service-mswin32... both gems available from
mongrel site, good! :D

Only bin/mongrel_rails_service should be linked as executable, the
_svc only will be used internally to fire it up (and cannot be fired
from a batch file).

Ok, moving the scripts to bin, changing the extensions and doing the
right change in the gem.
