I also whish you (or anyone who tries to build subversion on Windows)
good luck. It can be done, but it isn't easy. I for one spent a lot of
time getting it to work on my machine, just to experiment with some
simple things. Now I have a working build setup, but I wouldn't
consider it standard by any means (and don't have more time to invest
in standardizing this build).
