In the absense of actual understanding I was going for consistency;
copy everything. But I'm not married to any of this, although I find
it useful as it puts everything in one place.

As far as changing how the sqlite directory is laid out, again I have
no problem. I've been trying to let the original packagers have their
way and the .zip files I downloaded with the .dll and .h files don't
have any directory structure within them. The one question I would
have is since it is working for me all mashed together, would the
gen-make.py have to be modified to know where to get the .lib and .h?

As long as I have your attention, I wanted to ask now, while it is
still a ways off, if you have any interest in producing Windows
binarys for the Ruby bindings when the 1.5 time comes? And if you are
willing to take on that additional task, how can I help?
