This is one of the reasons why I mentioned that the Windows make files
are broken in my experience --  I've encountered exactly the same
problems as you have and have documented the solution in the build notes
of my Lua/APR project:

This is from https://github.com/xolox/lua-apr/blob/master/NOTES.md.
Together with the bootstrap script I linked to earlier this document
contains hints about compiling APR, APR-Util, APR-iconv and the
SQLite3 driver on Windows (XP) using the Windows Platform SDK.
