This is something that does not fit the purpose of MinGW.org providing
MSYS.  Can you convince me why Ruby would be needed under the MSYS
Runtime?  There is already a Windows version of it.  The purpose of
MSYS is simply to provide a mechanism to execute a typical configure
script to create a Makefile to be able to execute make.  I have not
seen a configure script that uses Ruby.
