Re: Subversion 1.2 RC1 Binaries

I'm curious: If 1.2-rc1 present enough difficulty compiling with
VisualStudio/Microsoft compilers, why not build with a cygwin
(http://cygwin.com) instead?

Yes, there will be a cygwin1.dll (or whatever the name of the lib is)
dependence that the resulting svn software will have (which you will not
notice on the machines that have cygwin installed...and/or if you copy said
cygwin run-time .dll file to machines that done), but isn't this better
then not having a build at all?

I build lots of POSIX-flavored, open-source software on Windows, and I have
*never* used VS to do it, I always use cygwin, in part because of build
problems (and because I'm a unix geek in general and don't care for MS's
build environments and non-POSIX-friendly approach). Generally if it
builds in Linux it usually has a good chance of building in cygwin.

Maybe this is a path this community has been down already...or people
simply don't want to go through the hassle of installing cygwin?

I'll probaby be going through a cygwin build of WinXP shortly, if someone
wants to ask me later how it goes don't hesitate to give me a holler.
