Hm. I guess I was having a hard time yesterday saying what I mean. Maybe
it was just too late. That is it exactly. r37331 changed the extensions of the
shared libraries for all the SWIG based bindings to .pyd. Truthfully, I don't
know what a .pyd is either, but it prevented the Ruby (and I am assuming)
the Perl bindings from working.

Partially revert r37331 "On Windows, shared libs for Python bindings
should be *.pyd not *.dll."

It appears renaming the shared libraries for Perl and Ruby was
inadvertent, so change the extension back to .dll for Ruby and Perl.

* build/generator/gen_base.py (TargetSWIG.add_dependencies): Mark Python
    wrapper shared libs as type "pyd" not "lib".
