I couldn't get this to work for me -- the Subversion commandline
projects (like svn.exe) failed to link because they were still setup
to link with the dynamic apr libraries (libapr-1.lib) rather than the
static apr libraries (apr-1.lib).

Note that I think they were using the correct header definitions due
to the directives above, but their linker input settings didn't get
changed to use the static libraries instead of the dynamic ones (and I
didn't see anything in the patch to do that?).

Were you able to get the svn.exe to build and link ok with this patch?

The server modules failed as well -- they probably should not be
statically linked in any case since they are loaded into Apache.
