I did this:

-----------
C:\InstantRails\rails_apps\telltor>gem install rmagick
Bulk updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org
Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError)
    ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

ruby gem_extconf.rb install rmagick

sh configure

gem_extconf.rb:38: undefined method `exitstatus' for nil:NilClass
(NoMethodError
)


Gem files will remain installed in
C:/InstantRails/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/r
magick-1.15.4 for inspection.
Results logged to
C:/InstantRails/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rmagick-1.15.4/gem
_make.out
---------------

And now, no matter what I try to install, uninstall, or delete, I get
this whenever I migrate my files:

-------------
C:\InstantRails\rails_apps\telltor>rake db:migrate
(in C:/InstantRails/rails_apps/telltor)
rake aborted!
no such file to load -- RMagick

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

C:\InstantRails\rails_apps\telltor>
-------------------

I even installed a new InstantRails and moved my app folder into the new
"rails_apps", but this carried over the problem!  So, the problem must
be inside the app folder itself, "telltor" and yet I can't figure it
out.

This stinks.  Thanks for help in advance.
