Problems building (linking) on Windows

There is a problem building both the 1.6.13 release and trunk on
Windows with the latest versions of some of our dependencies.

Apache 2.2.17 has been released and they updated the expat version to
1.95.7. This appears to have created linker problems and all of our
stuff that needs the exported expat symbols fails to link.

zlib 1.2.5 has been out for quite a while. Similar problem, we get a
linker error for the inflate_fast function when trying to use this. I
originally thought this was a local problem because I build 1.6.13
fine using the dependencies tarball. Turns out we are still including
1.2.4 in the tarball even though 1.2.5 had fixes they describe as:

zlib 1.2.5
April 19, 2010
Version 1.2.5 fixes bugs in gzseek() and gzeof() that were present in
version 1.2.4 (March 2010). All users are encouraged to upgrade
immediately.

Again, I just assumed we were including 1.2.5 so thought my problems
were local. I know one of our CollabNet release engineers had similar
problems (which I thought were just problems in their build scripts).

I currently reset my build to Apache 2.2.15 and zlib 1.2.4 which fixes
my builds again. I can reset back if someone wants to see the errors
in detail.
