[Rubygems-developers] Solving last stab of bugs for 1.3.5 release

Hello guys,

I'm dealing with the last thing for 1.3.5 release:

[#26458] gem bin scripts are broken if there are spaces in GEM_HOME
ENV variable on Windows

After further investigation of the commit that raised this, found two
things that originally justified the commit in the first place:

[#25734] Gem::Ext::RakeBuilder fails under windows if ENV['rake'] not set

And other that duplicates what Gordon reported:
[#25935] module installed by gem does not load when installation
directory path contains space

I did implemented a fix, and tests locally pass, but wanted to be sure
that is correct.

So, anyone knows of an existing gem that uses Rakefiles instead of
extconf for extensions?

Thank you.
