It's falls closest into the category "support for building apps with APR 
on Win32". The app I'm working on requires apr and aprutil. For the 
moment I just need to build them.

Ok, here's what I did.

Downloaded sources:
- APR 1.0 (http://mirrors.mix5.com/apache/apr/apr-1.0.0.tar.gz)
- APU 1.0 (http://mirrors.mix5.com/apache/apr/apr-util-1.0.0.tar.gz)

While following the build instructions:

Running from the command line:
D:\workbase\apr-util-1.0.0>msdev aprutil.dsp /MAKE "apr - Win32 Debug" 
"aprutil - Win32 Debug"
Warning: ignoring unknown project: aprutil - Win32 Debug
Warning: ignoring unknown project: apr - Win32 Debug
Error: There are no valid targets to build.

When I try to load the project files (*.dsp) directly into the workspace 
(aprutil.dsw), it prompts me to wrap them in another project because of 
a makefile incompatibility. Then the projects come up blank.

So basically, it doesn't appear to work out of the box. I'm using MSVC++
