Subject Compiling ZLIB for svn 1.9.3 on Windows 7 using MSVC 2008
Date Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:55:53 GMT

I was having issues compiling httpd and svn for use with Trac (via the python 2.7 bindings).
 I have compiled httpd 2.4.18 (with apr 1.5.1, apr-util 1.5.4, apr-iconv 1.2.1, openssl 1.0.2e,
pcre 1.3.8 and mod_wsgi 4.4.21) and am now trying to compile svn.

I noted the comments about zlibstat and ZLIB_WINAPI [1][2], so I edited:
- zconf.h (added #define ZLIB_WINAPI)
- bld_ml32.bat (added the /safeseh switch to both lines)
...and ran: 
- vcbuild /rebuild contrib\vstudio\vc9\zlibvc.sln "Release|Win32"

This seems to compile OK so I copied the zlibstat.lib up to the zlib root.

[1] (section E4 ZLib)

Next I built SERF 1.3.8:

> APR=\svn\httpd\srclib\apr APU=\svn\httpd\srclib\apr-util OPENSSL=\svn\httpd\srclib\openssl

...which reports success so I unpacked sqlite-amalgamation-3090200 and called gen-make: -t vcproj --vsnet-version=2008 --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 tried to build using subversion_vcnet.sln which resulted in lots of errors such as
"error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _inflate" for a number of functions that all look
like they come from zlib (plus some expected errors due to not having Perl etc.)

In the end I got it running by _removing_ all the ZLIB_WINAPI defines in the Visual Studio
project files and _not_ defining ZLIB_WINAPI in the main config file: this is the opposite
of the advice in [1]!

Does this sound correct?  If so I think the INSTALL file needs updating.
