Ok, so I gave up trying to figure out what to do with the .in file in
Windows. I ran ./configure for the apr on FreeBSD, everything,
*poof*, went as expected, and it eventually spat out apr.h as well as
a bunch of other stuff. I borrowed that apr.h and stuck it on my
Windows machine, hoping there wasn't anything FreeBSD specific in
there as a result. I no longer get a syntax error, but it's still
telling me:
*** No module name specified using %module or -module.

I have no idea what that means, but I guess I don't get a *_wrap.c
file? Or.... was I supposed to?

And uhm, could someone tell me what I was actually supposed to do with
the apr.h.* files? Please?
