The link was to show that they suggest putting the dll files under
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-mswin32 if compiled with mswin32 and under
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-mingw if compiled with mingw, msys chain.  That
way, you could use the same pure ruby libraries if you rename ruby mingw
version of executables to rubym and irbm and have the specific i386-mingw
directory added to the PATH for mingw extensions.
