Ah, most cool ... Is there (will there be?) some sort of DLL that ppl can
download as well, instead of having to build it?  My goal over the next
several weeks (or less) is to have it so that if libapr is installed under
Unix, it will detect and build with its API, which is why I was wondering
about the tarballs ... be nice if similar could be done under Windows
itself :)

Thanks for the info so far though ... at least I know I'm not going down a
deadend path :)
