I have been avoiding this conversation, because I haven't touched Windows
is a very long time.  I am actually working on getting a working NT system
right now, so hopefully I will be able to help out on NT later today.  

I think APR should be a library on Windows.  Statically linking it with
Apache is fine, when we are building an Apache dist, but if the only way
to get APR to build is as a part of Apache, then the general usefulness of
APR goes out the window.

BTW, what's wrong with linking multiple programs against the same
dll?  Why wouldn't we want to do this?  Isn't this the Windows way?
