I doubt that would be a good idea as my build directory is ~105 MB
with object files. However, since I recently went through the
process myself let me give you some advice. Set up your source
directories exactly as the VC++ project file would like them:

/subversion (from svn)
   /apr (from apache.org cvs)
   /apr-iconv (from apache.org cvs)
   /apr-util (from apache.org cvs)
   /db4-win32 (from http://www.sleepycat.com/)
   /neon (from http://www.webdav.org/neon/)

Download the MS Platform SDK from
http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/platformsdk/sdkupdate/ by
choosing Core SDK. Watch out though, because the download is
enormous, around 400 MB. It would be best if you just got this from
an MSDN CD if possible.

Build the Berkeley DB first, then follow with the apr* projects. If
you have not done all the above then expect a load of compilation and
linking errors.

The INSTALL file from the subversion describes all of the above in
more detail. It might be useful in the future to include some sort
of source download checklist like what I described above in addition
to the normal INSTALL file. That's just my $.02.
