I don't know, maybe. My point is that I pay attention to what it is
going on and I do not have a clue what to do. And I have been
building on Windows for years. Of course the problem with that is you
figure it out once ever year or so and then just repeat it. I thought
I would try the deps files (since my normal build is using older

When I build a standard Apache 2.2.8, the apr-util is not built with
BDB support and this seems to not allow the SVN build to proceed.
Perhaps it is something simpler I am missing? Perhaps I can use 1.4.6
and let it build apr and apr-util correctly and then I can copy that?
