  Force VC8 linking to msvcrt.dll is possible, but the export headers are
different. And as Thomas Lauer mentioned VC generates small differences when
using their native headers. So for this to work safely we should have VC6
export headers and import libraries.

  The Ruby discussion focus in which compiler to use to build Ruby
extensions on Windows: Visual Studio 2005 or MingW. In fact what is behind
this is also which RTL.

  When the Kepler discussion started someone recommended us the Ruby list.
There is exactly the same discussion there and no satisfactory solution so
far. They are still using msvcrt.dll.
