I'm not sure -- I don't think I've ever built BDB support into
Apache/APR, but I've always built it into Subversion and I don't
recall having any issues. I've never tried to build with the deps
files though.

I will try to make time to play with them this weekend. You're trying
to build the 1.5 pre-releases with their deps files?

Also, I have no attachment to our current Windows build system. If
TSVN's nant scripts or some version of them can be made to work well
then you'll get no hassles from me. I think, as Stefan said, the
issue was that we'd have to maintain two build systems -- but we're at
least partially in that boat already, so I'm not sure we'd be any
worse off. Unfortunately, I don't have much time to help with that,
though.
