Um, even that speed is one concern. I sympathize with you. With latest
free compiler released by microsoft, we could provide a good fundation
and could be easily expanded by end users (like solve the issue of no
compilers will compile extensions for current release of ruby).

As I said, I want to offer the time I invested in solve the
dependencies to get base ruby built with VC8.

I didn't take the msbuild / solutions path since to create them it
requires VisualStudio, which I didn't installed to avoid conflict with
free compiler distro.
