Looks like i don't have that problem on a fresh build machine. But i am
using VC 2012 and i do see quite a few errors to do with msgfmt and the

Since when you run gen-make.py vc2012 doesnt work so using 2008 and
opening the *.sln in MSVC to convert it all. Its currently building with:

pushd subversion-1.7.7
set PARMS=-t vcproj --vsnet-version=2008
set PARMS=%PARMS% --with-berkeley-db=C:\subversion-builds\svndeps\32bit\bdb\
set PARMS=%PARMS% --with-httpd=C:\subversion-builds\svndeps\32bit\httpd
set PARMS=%PARMS% --with-neon=C:\subversion-builds\svndeps\32bit\neon
set PARMS=%PARMS% --with-serf=C:\subversion-builds\svndeps\32bit\serf
set PARMS=%PARMS% --with-zlib=C:\subversion-builds\svndeps\32bit\zlib
set PARMS=%PARMS% --with-openssl=C:\subversion-builds\svndeps\32bit\openssl
set PARMS=%PARMS% --with-libintl=C:\GnuWin32
set PARMS=%PARMS% --with-swig=C:\swig

python gen-make.py %PARMS%


I see the java tests failing a lot and i get:

cmd /c build_locale.bat Debug
   The system cannot find the path specified.
   A subdirectory or file ..\..\Debug\mo already exists.
   Running msgfmt on de.po...
   python: can't open file '..\..\build\strip-po-charset.py': [Errno 2]

And those

c1 : fatal error C1083: Cannot open source file:
No such file or directory
c1 : fatal error C1083: Cannot open source file: '?

I feel a bit confused been working on trying to build subversion on
windows for nearly a week. Seems most things are baed on using VC6 or
cygwin or old MSVC 200{3,5}
