No, but building svnserve is easy and does not require OpenSSL. So I
assumed Apache. That said, in my experience it is a bitch to build
APR correctly on Windows. If you just build Apache you can let it
build APR and use the output.

The script is an attempt to show an example of how you could automate
the process. It is not really maintained either and likely does not
reflect the latest versions of dependencies and likely even all of the
options you can pass to gen-make.py.

I'd suggest looking at the scripts used by the Windows buildbot.
