Wonderful!  Once you have a beta release, we would love to include
you in the list of APR-based projects!

Simple enough - use apr/build/lineends.pl

Posting -win32-src.zip flavors, including exporting makefiles, has been
on my list of round tuits, thanks for the nudge :)

First and foremost is httpd server.  Version 2.1 (available from
http://httpd.apache.org/dev/dist/) is the version that builds
against APR 1.0, just drop apr and apr-util under it's srclib/ tree.
For Win32, also drop apr-iconv in there.

This is already noted as an issue with 1.0 - for 0.9 it shouldn't
adversely affect you.  But we hope you stick with release 1.0 and
look forward to our 1.0.1 release which should allow you to configure
apr without ldap on unix.  On win32, ldap is always available to APR.
