There's no question building VB apps typically doesn't follow the normal make system.

There *is* some way to compile a VB app outside the IDE -- the VB Package Wizard can recompile a project. But I don't know if that interface is documented, or whether we'd want to use it to somehow build WinSVN as part of the overall build system.

Greg Stein's comment on a separate CVS tree would also suggest that clients use independent build processes, appropriate for the technology used to build them (e.g., VB IDE for WinSVN, javac for a Java client, nothing at all for a Tcl/Tk client).
