Can I specify that stuff on the command-line like with
-DAPU_HAVE_CRYPTO=1 and -DAPU_HAVE_OPENSSL=1, or are those values
clobbered during the make?

Okay, I can see both of those directories under ..\openssl-1.0.1h. I'll
re-name the openssl directory accordingly.

Are these things that could be parameterized? I noticed the "no
exceptions" note on the "Building on win32" page, but it seems like
NMAKE should be able to use paths defined on the CLI, no?

Yeah, we do a statically-compiled tcnative because ... honestly I don't
really know. It's not that I need a static libapr... I need a static
tcnative. So as long as I produce linkable objects from libapr, I should
be able to statically-link tcnative (which itself is a .dll).

Awesome. I'll give all that a try.
