I don't know, as Daniel suggests you could try it. kou did all the
heavy lifting on the bindings, and we worked to get them building on
Windows specifically because many Windows users won't have the tools
to build Subversion and its dependencies. We made it easy to make a
Windows gem since most of the functionality is in .so files.

I've released a few on rubygems.org. I'm not sure how it would work
to release a binary gem for the different flavors of *nix. I'm having
enough trouble figuring out a mingw build to attempt to get a gem
suitable for 1.8.7+.
