Yes; see the recent changes in Makefile.win to see where we set up PATH= to the
corresponding binary subdirectories.  Of course if you cross compile, these
simply can't work.

apr-util 1.2.12 is on it's way.  I have one build failure as I had jumped to an
older nmake+older cmd.exe, my path-hack to work out the users' APR_PREFIX etc on
win32 doesn't behave as it did on server 2003+modern nmake, failing to then run
the test/ Makefile.win build properly.  Grumpf.  Should be an hour or few to get
that right (started it back in Atlanta), thanks for the loan of the wireless usb
dongle, Issac).

Amazing how long a bug can live unnoticed, eh?
