Yes, after playing around a bit, I think I see, thanks. I hadn't
realized MS _only_ made side-by-side CRT80 dll's -- I had assumed they
still provided 'normal' CRT80 dll's. Sigh.

Anyway, the .so's use APR make files that we don't install or touch --
we just point to them. What we really need to do is not have copies
of APR projects at all -- it was a temporary kludge that was supposed
to tide us over until they finished a generator...anyone know if they
have done that yet?
