Compiling python bindings (VS2012, Windows 7)

Dear list,

I thought I had subversion compiled OK, all the tests appear to be passing, but when I went looking for the python bindings they were missing. Looking at the VS2012 solution file, the __SWIG_PYTHON__ project seems to be empty and does nothing when rebuilt.

So I have re-built the following [Libraries > Swig] projects:
- libsvn_swig_py
- swig_python_core
- swig_python_client
- swig_python_delta
- swig_python_diff
- swig_python_fs
- swig_python_ra
- swig_python_repos
- swig_python_wc

All appear to build OK (although with plenty of warnings) and I end up with a collection of pyd files in D:\svn\src\Release\subversion\bindings\swig\python

I copied the files following the instructions here:

[1] http://www.lejordet.com/2009/03/compiling-subversion-python-bindings-on-windows/

...creating `svn` and `libsvn` folders, then copied those to my python install [Lib\site-packages].

However, I still get the dreaded "ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found."

I tried copying the three APR DLLs to libsvn in case but that does not seem to have helped.

Should I compile subversion with the "--disable-shared" option?

Or, there is a comment at [1] concerning the _USE_32BIT_TIME_T preprocessor definition for APR and Swig, is this still an issue for subversion 1.8.10 builds?

Thanks for any pointers...
