There was quite a discussion about this recently and a quick summary is
that the previous maintainer suffered a failure in his build machine and
is not in a position to be able to rebuild it. Various people seem to
have stepped up to volunteer their time and effort but at the moment
there is no one able to provide all of the binaries to be packaged and
made available.

You can apparently extract the binaries from the collabnet package (I
think 7-zip works, winzip doesn't, YMMV) but there may be issues with
the version of Visual C++ used to build the various bits (depending on
where you get your apache from). I have not tried this so cannot
confirm eithger way.

Search the list archive for "Tigris binary packages for Windows" for
more info...
