1.2.2 is a patch release. No need to build against it. Building
against 1.2.x is just fine. So just install 1.2.2 and go :-)

In fact, we're going to be releasing serf 1.3.0 rather than 1.2.2.
Lieven and Ivan call the new NTLM auth stuff "a new feature" rather
than "an authn bugfix". I prefer the latter, but hey... version
numbers are cheap, so I'm not gonna fuss too hard about it. And of
course, even if you build against 1.2.x, then you can just install the
1.3.x when it is ready. No rebuild needed :-)
People should be able to test against serf trunk for the new fixes. It
calls itself 2.x, but whatever: svn works against that numbering, too.
We'll be cutting 1.3.x from trunk, then backing out some bits to make
the 1.3.x branch. I'll likely have the branch up in the next 24 hours.
Note to Windows users building from trunk: time to use scons.
