[Rubygems-developers] How to specifiy c level build options inside a gem

When i tried to install mysql on windows i thought that it would
ask me for the library directory of the mysql driver. But it did not.

Is this an error from the person who build the mysql gem or does RubyGems
not offer such a functionality.

On windows there is simply no way to detect a c library, so a user must specify it.

Best regards,
