[Kde-bindings] QtRuby4 gem successfully built for Windows

Patch file has been sent.

If ok with you and Jan, I would be more than willing to take over maintenance of the windows qtruby gem.  I've made some really nice improvements to the way the gem was packaged earlier and would like to see more frequent releases (the last windows gem was released Jun 2008).

1. Ruby 1.8 and Ruby 1.9 are both supported in the same gem
2. By modifying the path environment variable when Qt is required, I avoided copying all the qt/qtruby .dll files into the Ruby/bin folder.  This also allows multiple versions of the gem to be installed side by side and have both work correctly.

Thanks for doing all this work! I think I should raise the version number of 
the QtRuby release to 2.10 for the KDE SC 4.4 release.  Maybe I should do 
another release of QtRuby on RubyForge.

Jan Pilz has done Windows ruby gems for QtRuby in the past and it might be 
best to coordinate with him to get a gem that you can put on the Korundum 
RubyForge site. If you can do a patch as Ian suggests, perhaps we should get 
the version of QtRuby in the KDE 4.4 branch patched for Windows compatibility 
before we do a standard release.
