I started a new thread with all these bits of information about
building on Windows (was getting heavily off-topic from the original
subject of Py3 support :-)):

"Building SVN (dependencies) on Windows"
https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/r59a30aabaab7bf69effa909b331eaa177418325280ea25859e8fa294%40%3Cdev.subversion.apache.org%3E

Please continue further discussion / hints / additions there, thanks.
