On Win32 I can comment:

I create my own "small ruby distro for deployment" on Win32. It
downloads ruby mswin32 binaries, apply patches (cgi.rb for now).
Download zlib dll and ruby-zlib. OpenSSL, readline and Iconv.

Then I package rubygems, patch the scripts and package it as 7zip archive.

I plan to extend this with ruby source recompile, when I reinstall VC6
and my fresh license Intel Compiler license, aiming to boost a bit of
performance on win32 side.

For deployment I use a custom InnoSetup routines (like Windows
Installer) so can't comment on Apache deployment, most of my
installations are intranet-ones.
