Install GSL\Ruby 1.8.3 with Mingw/MSYS at Windows failed?

Hi

I tried installing GSL\Ruby 1.8.3 with Mingw/MSYS at Windows XP. But it
failed, I am wondering if someone can give me some help.

I installed Ruby at Windows using a one-click Ruby installer
ruby185-21.exe.

  1. I installed GSL 1.8 with MingW/MSYS sucessfully.
  2. Try % ruby setup.rb config failed and the error information is like
    below
    ========================================================
    —> lib
    —> lib/gsl
    <— lib/gsl
    <— lib
    —> ext
    c:/ruby/bin/ruby c:/Software/Ruby/rb-gsl-1.8.3/ext/extconf.rb
    checking gsl version…
    c:/Software/Ruby/rb-gsl-1.8.3/ext/extconf.rb:146: Check GSL>=0.9.4 is
    installed, and the command “gsl-config” is in search path.
    (RuntimeError)
    setup.rb:535:in command': 'system c:/ruby/bin/ruby c:/Software/Ruby/rb-gsl-1.8.3/ext/extconf.rb ' failed (RuntimeError) from setup.rb:1112:inextconf’
    from setup.rb:1107:in config_dir_ext' from setup.rb:1321:insend
    from setup.rb:1321:in traverse' from setup.rb:1338:indive_into’
    from setup.rb:1319:in traverse' from setup.rb:1313:inexec_task_traverse’
    from setup.rb:1308:in each' from setup.rb:1308:inexec_task_traverse’
    from setup.rb:1097:in exec_config' from setup.rb:878:inexec_config’
    from setup.rb:710:in __send__' from setup.rb:710:ininvoke’
    from setup.rb:674:in `invoke’
    from setup.rb:1352
    =============================================================

Then I found if I changed

if /mingw/ =~ RUBY_PLATFORM
GSL_CONFIG = “sh gsl-config”
else
GSL_CONFIG = “gsl-config”
end

to

GSL_CONFIG = “sh gsl-config”

then this step can run sucessfully. and the result is like below

a pre-compiled version is here - it may help
