MS distinguishes their 32 vs 64 bit builds by the CL/LINK you invoke, not
(so much) by flags.

Let us know if the build stumbles.  Because you can't run 64 bits on ancient
Windows, if you are compiling trunk, you should certainly compile the targets
as ReleaseNT, e.g.

NMAKE /f "libapr.mak" CFG="libapr - Win32 ReleaseNT"

but not in apr 1.2.x, simply use the Release target.
