The reason why I need MinGW is because Ruby was compiled with MinGW. I
did compile mod_ruby with nmake on Windows. Works fine and Apache
starts as well if I install Ruby via nmake as well. Not a problem.

But I am dependent on the Oniguruma-patch and that patch can only be
applied with MinGW at the moment. Also Ruby compiled with MinGW is
faster then when compiled with nmake.

Are you a Windows or a Linux User? I am asking because I think I am
not that far away. I just need to understand the workings for Apache
in Windows a bit better - as mod_ruby does compile with MinGW with the
changes I pointed out.

So if you can point me towards somewhere to debug mod_ruby for Apache
on Windows so that I get my normal Server-Info as on Linux for:
Request Phase Participation.

I really think it is the Content Handlers that do not work. So there
must be something different there in Apache for Windows compared to
Apache for Linux.


PS: The Ruby-Windows Installer is compiled with MinGW. And that is a
great installer.
