[Win32utils-devel] What's the plan for support 1.9.x

I tried RubyInstaller preview 1 ruby 1.9.1p129 at
http://rubyinstaller.org/downloads/ .
I noticed the package contains no gems unlike OCI.

When I tried to install windows-pr, it failed like this:
C:\>gem install windows-pr
Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
ERROR:  Error installing windows-pr:
        ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

c:/Ruby19/bin/ruby.exe extconf.rb
checking for strncpy_s()... *** extconf.rb failed ***
Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of
necessary libraries and/or headers.  Check the mkmf.log file for more
details.  You may need configuration options.

I know I did not install developer kit.

Is there any chance of providing binary gem for ruby 1.9.1 mingw32 version?
Does anyone checked the compatibility of the win32-utils with ruby 1.9.x?
Or just do not use win32-utils in ruby 1.9.x?
