Rubyists,

I am trying to compile ruby-1.8.1 using cygwin and I get this error during
make:

make[1]: Entering directory `/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/Shashank
Date/cygwin/ruby-1.8.1/ext/bigdecimal'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/cygdrive/c/Documents', needed by
`bigdecimal.o'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/Shashank
Date/cygwin/ruby-1.8.1/ext/bigdecimal'
make: *** [all] Error 1

Any suggestions?

Looks like it's the space in the path that's doing it. Eliminate that
and try again.

FWIW I built the latest 1.8 from CVS on Cygwin very recently, no
problem.

Cheers,
Gavin

IMHO rather the build system should be made space safe...
