1. Use the correct linker flag `-L/path/to/librubys.a/' and look
if there is a lib named libcygwin-ruby16.a, isn't the name of
the import lib librubys.a or was it changed since 1.6.5 and 1.6.6?
2. use `my' ruby-1.6.5 package which is available at this URI:
http://familiehaase.de/cywgin/ruby/ and installs the lib and
headers and dll in `cygwin-usual' places (/usr/local/lib/ruby/...,
3. Build ruby yourself:
