Success! Thanks for the advice Roger.

I already had curl - it's part of the git distrubution

I didn't like the idea of including cygwin in my path (I think Luis
strongly discourages it too), so I downloaded it from here:

I was having serious troubles running the rake commands. Turns out I
needed to add the bin folder in GCC in the devkit to my path. I hadn't
already done this because I assumed that installing the devkit (and the
.bat files that come with it) in the Ruby folder would do this for me.

Truly. Thanks Roger, and especially thanks to Luis for providing such
sexy tools. ;-)
