RMagick src install on Cygwin?

Hi:

Has anyone had success installing RMagick on Cygwin? I’m having an issue
with RMagick seeing my fonts:

PreserveAspectRatio.rb:204
post-setup.rb: PreserveAspectRatio.rb
example returned error code 256
/usr/bin/ruby -I
/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rmagick-1.15.7/./lib -I
/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rmagick-1.15.7/./ext/RMagick RotateScale.rb
/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rmagick-1.15.7/./lib/rvg/misc.rb:321:in
get_type_metrics': unable to read font/usr/share/fonts/default/TrueType/verdana.ttf’
(Magick::ImageMagickError)

Instead of ImageMagick, I’m using GraphicsMagick, which shouldn’t be an
issue. At one point I used both and still had trouble.

Try this command from a shell prompt:

convert label:abcdef test.gif

If you get the “unable to read font” message, report the problem to the
ImageMagick forum.
