Hey Guys,

While the change implemented in revision 2142 may sounds good in
theory, is incorrect.

I'm running all the tests of RubyGems and other using MinGW, not
VC6/8/9 build of Ruby.

Because of that, I don't have nmake but make instead.

Skipping those test due the availability of the compiler toolset need
to take those in consideration.

Keep in mind that win_platform? will return true if your platform is
one of the Gem::WIN_PLATFORMS:

  # An Array of Regexps that match windows ruby platforms.


Which consider bccwin (no nmake over there), cygwin (uses make), djgpp
(who cares about DOS anymore), and wince (which should be VS based
