Strange, on my machine it's the release build that's broken, the debug
build still works (because it defines all those symbols, so there is
no linker problem). Are you sure we're talking about the same patch
(r1209610, the commit that's the subject of this thread)?

BTW, I noticed that, before r1209610, my release build was failing for
another reason:

..\..\..\subversion\libsvn_subr\debug.c(111): error C4013: 'SVN_DBG'
undefined; assuming extern returning int

(this started happening after r1209598, which said "Add a debug macro
to print a prop hash." --- before r1209598 all was ok)

I assumed that was the reason for r1209610: to make the builds, which
didn't define SVN_DEBUG (release builds), working again after r1209598
broke them. Except that it doesn't fix the problem for the Windows
compiler / linker (cf. danielsh's extractor.py pointer).

So, if we just revert r1209610, the (release) builds will fail again
for this other reason.
