hmmm... This is definitely not a complete review, just what I saw in a
few minutes of browsing your patch.

This can't be right. First, APR doesn't need shfolder.dll; libsvn_subr
does. Next, you seem to be assuming a static build. For a dynamic build,
aprutil must depend on apr.

So I'll have a .dsp generator, but I'll still have to edit
build_neon.bat to make it link with zlib and openssl? I _said_ I didn't
want to push everything into gen-make.py, because the Windows build
scripts will need options like --with-zlib. It would also be nice to be
able to point to the location of apr, apr-util, apr-iconv, BDB, ... all
of which is handled by the configure script on Unix, but has to go
somewhere else on Windows.

I sympathize, but you should really chose more descriptive names.

The contents of this file seem to be pasted twice.

And this one.

Hardcoded location again.

You should coordinate with Jostein about the innosetup thing.

And a general observation: You hardcode the names and behaviour of the
build configurations, and templates for the build scripts, in the python
code. That makes it very hard to a) add new configuratoins, and b)
change the scripts (or generate scripts for building DLLs, for example).

The generated build scripts (at least the .dsp's) should always have
CRLF line endings, regardless of the platform they were generated on.

win-tests.py should be changed to modify the abs_builddir for the target
configuration.

Please, don't think I don't appreciate the efort you put in this. It's
just that I'd like to see these scripts become really useful.
