Forgot a useful tidbit.  There is also a project file in apr/test called
(shockingly) aprtest.dsw.  It builds the apr (static) library and puts together
the test apps.  Forewarned is forearmed, it's broken more often than not (since
we rearrange the unix build on a semi-weekly basis), and there is a bit of perl
script that twists that into a windows make file to compile the test apps.

I'll try a bit harder to keep it building now that we seem to have stablized
for the moment.
