I've been trying on and off for a couple days to get visual ruby on my
computer at work. I've been unable to get the gem to install through my
proxy so I decided to just download the gem from rubygems and got the
dev kit installed today. Now, I ran the install on the local gem that I
have and I got to this point:

checking for port... no
*** extconf.rb failed ***
Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of necessary
libraries and/or headers.  Check the mkmf.log file for more details.
You may
need configuration options.

Provided configuration options:
        --with-opt-dir
        --without-opt-dir
        --with-opt-include
        --without-opt-include=${opt-dir}/include
        --with-opt-lib
        --without-opt-lib=${opt-dir}/lib
        --with-make-prog
        --without-make-prog
        --srcdir=.
        --curdir
        --ruby=C:/Ruby/bin/ruby
        --with-pkg-config
        --without-pkg-config
        --with-override-variables
        --without-override-variables

I can post the contents of mkmf.log if need be, but I'm a bit stumped at
this point. Any help you can provide would be great. Thanks in advance.

You need more then just the visualruby gem itself.  There's vrlib gem,
which is the core extension library behind VisualRuby, and the Gtk gems,
which is the core GUI behind VisualRuby.

Ontop of that, if your running on windows, you need the Gtk Runtime
Development Environment installed, so that it can compile the Gtk Gems.
 Now, specifically to address the issue that is listed above, without
seeing the full traceback for the gem install, or the mkmf.log as well
as
the gem that it's failing on, there's not much I can tell ya, or anyone
else, without these things.  So, if you could provide the name of the
gem
that is failing to install, as well as the mkmf.log file, so that we can
see what is happening, it would be much appreciated.

You need to use x86-mingw32 version.

For example, you need to use

  https://rubygems.org/gems/glib2/versions/1.2.6-x86-mingw32

rather than

  https://rubygems.org/gems/glib2/versions/1.2.6

for glib2 gem.
