I got it to work by using 'jruby -S rake rawr:bundle:all' in the compile step. Failed on Windows 7 x64 though (Lion worked), so your mileage may vary, but the point is to run the build from within jruby and not regular ruby.

When I enter "jruby -S rake rawr:bundle:all" I get same error. Can you send me compailed .exe version of CompassApp?

As rawr has been deprecated, you can install it using:

jruby -S gem install rawr --source
