No... the entire dependency is on excluding it from svn.  Please remember that default timestamps in svn are worthless and whatever you checked in is platform specific.

What happens if you delete include/private/apr_escape_test_char.h before starting the build? Right now the file is checked in, but given that Windows builds produce different output to Unix builds we may be forced to rebuild this header each time from scratch.


The build bombs if apr_escape_test_char.h is first removed.  I guess there's no dependency on generating it first.
