Yes, I know. I also know the solution -- it's similar to what APR is
doing, only a bit more complicated, because we have to take cross-DLL
linkage into account. Well, no matter, we can address the dynamic build
later.

Hehe, be careful here -- *I* am the author of the neon Windows makefile,
and our build_neon.bat. :-)
The reason it's not as simple as you'd like is that project files simply
aren't flexible enough, and neon can build and link with a lot of
different options. A makefile was the only sane solution.
