I think it is.

I have updated building instructions in docs/build_install.txt to reflect the 
windows compilation/install. Basically the compiler must be the same as used 
for compilation of ruby binary (for ruby-lang.org installer its MSVC 6.0) - 
unfortunately it seems MSVC is binary incompatible with itself in various 
versions, so it is not possible to use the free 2005, or other MSVC builds. 

The other things are installing Platform SDK from MS, supplying glut.h from 
any glut package, and in case of the one-click ruby installer, after building 
and installing the gem, deleting the original opengl.so and glut.so from the 
install so there isn't conflict.

The one-click installer is the only i've tried on windows, but it should work 
with other ruby binary builds as well.
