I have a patch for the dsp template that adds resources back into exe's
and Apache modules, and moves the output back into the sourcetree which
I think is where it should go for the tests...but that means all the
exe's (tests as well as svn.exe, etc) are in the source directories, and
I'm not sure if that's desired...?

Since I only have VSNet2003, I can't actually test the dsps, they get
converted first...but I think they should work.

A couple of problems I've noticed are that SVN_FILE_NAME which is used
for the Original File Name version property is not set anywhere, and
libsvn_fs and mod_dav_svn both still put some intermediate output under
the build directory -- I haven't tracked down where that's from.

I also am still having problems building most of the tests due to the
link error: "LINK : fatal error LNK1561: entry point must be defined",
but I'm starting to think maybe that is just a conversion problem since
no one else seems to be having trouble...

The patch also makes Apache modules have the .so extension.

I have .Net 2003, which has (yet another) new file format (although it
looks like they only tweaked version numbers after a cursory glance). I
think probably a new template is needed though, as one of the problems I
posted earlier comes from converting old project formats into the new one.

It appears that the conversion process just *drops* any source files
that do not exist from the project. IE, getdate.c which is generated
for libsvn_subr gets dropped from all projects that reference it
(libsvn_subr and mod_dav_svn) because at the time VSNet converts the
projects, getdate.c doesn't exist...so they have to be manually added
back in after building __CONFIG__. Very annoying (read: broken)
behavior of the converter. So, for us VSNet2003 folks to easily gen the
projects and build, I think a new template will be needed...I'd be happy
to help build and test it if you decide to do that.

I've attached the patch (the project files have very long lines, so I
can't include it directly without wrapping) for anyone who may find it
useful until the official fixes are in.
