One more thing that came to mind: there is another interesting perl
script in our repository:
This was originally written by Ben Reser years ago, and probably
worked pretty well for a while. I think I learned some of the "httpd
build workarounds" from that script.
It might be worthwhile to resurrect that script, bring it up to date
etc. (for instance, I'd drop neon and probably also bdb (or at least
make it optional), and try to bring all the others up to their latest
version). Also, it would probably be nice if you could choose between
"debug" and "release" configuration on the one hand, and "x86" and
"x64" on the other (two orthogonal axes IIUC). If such a script is
accompanied by good documentation in INSTALL (and the script itself
pointing to INSTALL for further info), that would make a good
combination I think. As in: INSTALL points to the script for easily
building all dependencies, but at the same time contains all the info
to do things manually if you want to (and that "manual explanation"
serves also as explanation of what the script is actually doing).
