I too would like to see a standard, cross-platform method for building Ruby extensions.  For what it's worth, I have an existing 
collection of build tasks for Rake (extensions, SWIG, RPMs, etc.) packaged as a Gem (rake-tasks).  It's probably somewhat 
Unix-specific, but if you're interested, the code is here:  http://rake-tasks.rubyforge.org/git?p=rake-tasks.git;a=tree
