Yeah, the stuff in the contrib directory isn't a part of any binary
distribution, Windows or otherwise, AFAIK. But you don't need to run
configure; all it would do is rename the file and replace one string
in it, which you can easily do by hand.

According to http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/contrib/client-
side/svncopy.README :
