I just made two changes to the system() spec:
  * 1.9 will return nil instead of false for execution failure
  * Magical cmd.exe builtins per ruby-core:21661

http://github.com/quix/alt_system/tree/master

I tried the latest from ruby-lang.org

ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/binaries/mswin32/ruby-1.9.1-p0-i386-mswin32.zip

It has 187 failures (mine is "alt", ruby's is "kernel")

http://drake.rubyforge.org/tmp/spec-output-1.9-r21907-mswin32/system_spec_alt.html
http://drake.rubyforge.org/tmp/spec-output-1.9-r21907-mswin32/system_spec_kernel.html

I am currently unable to build a mingw version of 1.9 using my usual
method of bootstrapping from cygwin.  Luis, would you run this spec on
the latest?  When you confirm I'll post to ruby-core again.
