We make all kinds of changes without testing on all platforms. Most
developers don't have access to all of the platforms we support.

But I'm not sure that's a good excuse for me :-), as the change was
specifically regarding one platform. And yes, I trusted the feedback rather
than actually running the tests.

How about this: I have copies of Visual C 6.0 and Visual C .Net. I'm going
out of town for a week starting Friday, but I'll get VC6 installed at home
and give it a best effort. There is also a good chunk that I can do right
now, without actual compilation on Windows (working on that now).

You listed the following items:

    * mod_dav_svn doesn't build
    * most of the test programs are missing
    * apr-iconv is missing
    * the .exe files don't contain version info
    * win-tests.py needs to be taught about the new build location

I just checked in a change for the apr-iconv stuff. That would seem to get
us back to "the port works except for mod_dav_svn". We're then missing the
tests and version info.

I should have a bunch of the changes for this checked in today, and then
I'll personally test it later tonite.

Fair enough. I missed your earlier post, broke the build, and will take
responsibility to get it working again (as much as possible before leaving
for a week).

(c) isn't an option. I'm working on (a). Can we see where we end up by
