RE: windows/dav newbie configuration question

This isn't really different from the INSTALL instructions.
It's just a bit more verbose. There are a few points that I noticed tho in building that aren't mentioned in the INSTALL instructions.

First, you *must* build the apache source before the mod_dav_svn. Second, (minor) the apache distribution normally unzips to httpd-2.0.40 (or whatever version) and the mod_dav_svn project file requires the dir to be named httpd-2.0. Third, you end up with two sets of apr and apr-util (one in httpd-2.0/srclib/apr{util} and one in svn/apr{util}), but this is alright. Fourth, if you use the neon from CVS, your build will fail because config.hw isn't there. (My workaround was to run ./.release.sh 0.23.3 in cygwin.) I believe that the release zip file doesn't suffer from this problem.

These aren't truly different from the INSTALL instructions, but they are just little gotchas that would be nice to mention in the instructions. Personally, I'm a big fan of step-by-step instructions that will take a user from zero to completely built and installed system. The INSTALL instructions were awesome but I did hit these little points.

(BTW - I was prompted to do this because I had troubles with the installer (svn-0.14.2-r3033-setup.exe). But I think these little extra points are worth mentioning.)

How is this different from the instructions in INSTALL?
