Sure, no problem. This is very likely why it is not supported much in
the first place. As far as I recall, you're the first person to
actually want a totally static build (ie, statically linking apr as
well) on Windows. Subversion used to only supply static libraries
(although it still dynamically linked to apr as it does now) and it
seemed like everyone hated it. There was much rejoicing when the
dynamic libraries were added.
