Currently we have a configure script which runs on many (all?) unix
flavors, but has not been tested with any unix emulators on Windows.
On windows we use gen_win.py from the root of the source tree.
Currently it can't generate makefiles (because no-one ever wanted to
compile with anything but MSVC.)

If you want to know what to do in order to enable creation of DLLs,
you can start by reading
http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2005-08/0319.shtml and
http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2003-10/0617.shtml . There's probably
more in the archives. There might even be an issue in the issue

Also, I'm cc-ing brane on this. He wants this to be done a long time
already (but didn't have the time to do it). I hope brane and I can
help you create a patch which will enable DLLs for Win32.

I'm afraid you won't be able to compile svn with mingw for now. You
still won't after we can generate DLLs, but we will be able to provide
you with DLLs to link against...
