I'm trying to compile the ruby whirlpool library from

on windows with Cygwin.

extconf.rb looks like this:

require 'mkmf'

It doesn't give any error messages while creating the makefile,
however when I give the "make" command in cygwin, I get

Makefile:106: *** target pattern contains no %. Stop.

Line 106 of the Makefile looks like this:

install-so: $(RUBYARCHDIR)

It works fine in Ubuntu btw.

Thanks in advance

What Ruby version are you trying to use under Cygwin?
