Well, I managed to get a little bit more progress by moving around a
bunch of the .h files. But apr.h seems to be missing. I saw apr.h.in
and that seems to be what I'm looking for. It says apr.h is a
generated file? How do I generate it? On a whim, I tried just
renaming apr.h.in to apr.h and got back an error from SWIG:
E:\svn-source\subversion-1.1.4\subversion\bindings\swig>swig -ruby apr.i
apr.h(257): Error: Syntax error in input.
*** No module name specified using %module or -module.

So I assume that was the wrong thing to do :-P
