Something suddenly went wrong in my ruby install.
When installing Mongrel on my Windows XP laptop, it incorrectly tries to
build it as a native extension. I don’t even get the selection where I
can choose to install a compiled version.
I would appreciate any help/links or similar, as I frankly don’t
understand what’s going on and why I dont get the usual selection box.
C:>gem install mongrel
Building native extensions. This could take a while…
ERROR: Error installing mongrel:

‘nmake’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Gem files will remain installed in
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/fastthread-1.0.1 for inspection.

PS. for further investigation I have attached the output from running
the gem install with --debug flag
