I've checked in the modified gen-build.py, but I don't think that will
help you right now since you still have NetWare-specific makefiles and
other build bits.

I have also committed a fix to stop doing the gen-uri-delims stuff, which
I think was your real headache. We now just directly encode the tables in
apr_uri.c. Once the Windows build (any what others?) stop trying to build
gen_uri_delims.c/.dsp, then those files can be removed from apr-util/uri/.

The next step will be to determine how gen-build.py can build NetWare
build bits for you. I'm not familiar with the NetWare build system, but
will look at those custom Makefiles that you have checked in. We should be
able to do something.

Please let me know where your pain points are now.
