No -- it appears to be some odd and harmless issue with apr and VC6 --
it happens in my VC6 builds as well. It doesn't happen with other
compilers (like VS2005).

Yes. I believe they build mostly warning-free with gcc, but not with

That sounds about right, although its a lot more than 48 tests -- each
of those output lines is a set of tests. The skipped lines are
individual tests that were skipped due to being irrelevant or not
applicable to the platform (no executable bit or symlinks on Windows).

What buildbot are you looking at? There is definitely one for Windows
although it uses VC2005 Express and has been running http/ra_dav tests
lately, rather than file/ra_local tests.

If you get Ruby to work please post back on what you did -- I don't
know of anyone that has built them on Windows (I tried a while back
but gave up rather quickly after getting lots of preprocessor errors
in the generated swig files).
