Synopsis: I had two binary gems for win32-api. One for mswin32_60 and 
one for mswin32_80. The '60' gem is the one compatible with the 
one-click installer. However, if another gem generated by Hoe was added 
as a dependency first, it would grab the wrong windows binary gem.

In Charley's example, he had this:

Gem::Specification.new do |s|

But, if you reversed the dependencies, it would work.

I haven't verified this myself, I'm just passing along what I was told.
