Subject Re: cvs commit: apr/misc/netware pre_nw.h aprlib.imp aprlib.def

The reason why is because of the limitations of the Code Warrior IDE.  At this point we are
forced to use the Code Warrior IDE and build everything with a project file rather than a
MAKE file.  The Code Warrior IDE and the project files are not as robust as some others. 
I have yet to figure out how to run an external build process (ie. .BAT, AWK, Perl, etc.)
from within the project file itself.  This is causing me a problem with APR.H also since this
header file is generated through configure on most platforms or simply copied or rename in
the case of Windows through the use of a batch file that is run from the MSVC project.  I
may have to resort to a prebuild script that the developer has to manually run before starting
the IDE and building the project.  But for the time being, I have bigger fish to fry just
trying to get APR working on NetWare. :)

Whoa....  Why can't make_exports.awk (or some derivative that'll output a
Netware-friendly-commaified version) take care of this?  It was always
such a PITA to maintain this stuff in version control.  It was
_constantly_ out-of-date.  Why won't an auto-generated version work here?
