As far as I know, the 32 bit binaries that were made available previously
were compiled with MS Visual Studio 6, which is about fifteen years old by
now. I still have copy of that, though. The instructions are a part of the
Apache documentation:

So it would be still possible to build it yourself although the defined way
includes using a proprietary and ancient compiler, which is no longer sold.
And of course, sites like Apache Lounge and Apache Haus also distribute
their own binary builds, including 64 bits.

Still, it would be nice if Apache foundation would provide a binary build,
or link to any of these sites directly. On Linux, most people tend to
apt-get or yum install their binaries, on Windows there is no such solution.
