Short answer: no.

Long answer:

If you want to go that road, you will need do somethink like Aslak
Hellesoy did for ruby-usb:

The other, more complex way is get a rbconfig.rb from a MinGW
environment and put inside your existing One-Click environment,
replacing your original VC6 one.

*Another* approach is go for a full MinGW build of Ruby, like we are
doing for One-Click Installer:
