Yes, that is true.  Its not trivial to get Gem building on MinGW, but  
I think its definitely doable and without horrible pain, just some  
pain ;).  The Windows build server is ready to do it, its got the  
QuickTime SDK installed. I think the best plan of attack is to do it  
incrementally.  So first just the most basic, stripped down version of  
Gem building, then try adding more features as things get working.   
Patrice, if you can take the lead on this, I'll help where I can.
