Where to ask for help compiling svn on windows?

Where is the best place to get help compiling subversion (on windows 7)? Is it OK to post to the dev list or should I ask here first?

Specifically, I am trying to build subversion on windows 7 using Visual Studio 2012. I have got so far (I think I have httpd building OK with OpenSSL for example, I can run up httpd and connect to the server), but the libsvn_client_dll project is failing with:

LNK1181: cannot open input file 'D:\svn\src\Release\subversion\libsvn_ra\libsvn_ra-1.lib'

When I check for libsvn_ra-1.lib I can only find `d:\svn\src\release\subversion\libsvn_ra\svn_ra-1.lib` so it looks like the project files are wrong or I am missing something.

I built the project files using:

gen-make.py -t vcproj --vsnet-version=2012 --with-httpd=D:\svn\httpd --with-openssl=d:\svn\httpd\srclib\openssl --with-serf=d:\svn\serf --with-sqlite=d:\svn\sqlite --with-swig=c:\programs\swig --with-zlib=d:\svn\zlib

...and then tried to build the __ALL_TESTS__ target in (Win32) Release mode.

For background I have been following a combination of:
[1] http://blogs.collab.net/subversion/building-subversion-on-windows-a-walk-through
[2] http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/platform/win_compiling.html
[3] https://www.apachehaus.net/build/buildapache.html

I have also seen [4] Ben's perl script but I am not familiar enough with perl to understand the script, and the build VM has no internet connection to connect to repos etc.

Any help appreciated!

P.S. I am currently using Strawberry Perl (rather than ActiveState Perl), is that likely to be an issue?
