I totally agree on the pain here. It's also the same for Serf on Windows.
It seems like folks are moving towards CMake on Windows - especially as
Microsoft is now including it with Visual Studio. Expat and APR/APR-Util
already have CMake projects; notably OpenSSL does not yet, AFAICT. Serf
has one too in its as-of-yet-unreleased 1.4.x branch that I'm making fitful
progress on validating in prep for a 1.4.0 release.

My pie-in-the-sky would be to help create a Buildstream project file that
could pull all of this together to make it easier on Windows and
Linux...but, there's some work to be done here, so it's not an overnight
thing. (Sander and I are doing hack sessions around it; Buildstream is
also moving to Apache shortly[1].)

Cheers. -- justin
