Giving this a try with 1.8.x RC1

I used this option. Ran into two quick problems that were easy to solve:

1) Script got a 404 when downloading zlib 1.2.7. I recall seeing
messages about 1.2.8 on the list here so I changed the version in the
script and that solved that problem.

2) Got an error about invalid command line option when it tried to use
7-zip to unpack the tarballs. Turned out I had an old version
installed. I installed the latest and that resolved it.

I like that the script can be re-run.

The script then started chugging along and building. It looks like it
failed at the end of building httpd. Not really sure why or what is

========== Build: 7 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

Any ideas? I searched the output for what Failed and do not see
anything referenced.

Searching for all instanced of "Error". It might be this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\V110\Microsoft.CppCommon.ta
