Re: 1.8.0-rc1 up for testing/signing

My Windows system is not setup to build 1.8.x in the sense that I have
been building 1.7.x with a set of dependencies I built a fairly long
time ago and have pretty much just left in tact from release to
release and are now old and out of date. It would make sense to
update to the latest versions of most of these, and in some cases this
will be required.

Before I set off to start do all that grunt work, does anyone have a
build script for Windows they would like me to try out? I have VS
2008 and 2012 installed so can use either of those.

Obviously I already have things like Python/Perl installed from
building 1.7.x. I could update those if needed. But if someone wants
me to try their script that builds Apache, OpenSSL, Serf etc. Let me
know and I will give it a try and provide the results.
