Yes, Win32 is totally hosed right now if you're using NTFS. The indirect
culprit apr_fle_copy -- APR doesn't handle Win32 ACLs very well, that's
why the copes are failing. Fixing that code in APR is not trivial.

I also found out that the latest version will fail because
apr_file_attr_set isn't implemented for Win32. That's sheer, sloppy
programming, we should be taking that into account. This patch is a
temporary fix:

Because that's where it happens to be installed on my machine.

The installer program doesn't have a clue. I've been using cygwin
installed that way for years, without a hitch.

That's exactly what you're supposed to do.

The Win32 binary builds are experimental. The comment on the downloads
page says so.
