Line endings isn't the problem.  The problem was that the Configuration
string is case sensitive.

The following works:

    nmake -f apache.mak cfg="apache - Win32 Release"

This doesn't:

    nmake -f apache.mak cfg="Apache - Win32 Release"

Go figure!

And it also doesn't work without a cfg parameter.

I still didn't manage to compile though.  I am using the latest from-cvs
tarball and get:

NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make '".\nt\dirent.h"'

There is no src/nt/dirent.h file.  Did someone forget to "cvs add" that
