Aren't you wasting your time just a bit? Subversion does include a
build-file generator that'll create project files for, IIRC, every
version of Microsoft compiler from VC6 onwards. Pretty much the same is
true of APR; witness the fact that a fair number of people are building
Subversion on Windows, and there's also a script used on buildbots that
automates the whole shebang.

Going from scratch with CMake will quite likely give you a splitting
headache, and no-one in their right mind would want to help with that. :-P
