Thanks... that's how I broke it :-)

Let me offer why xmltok -does- need to be built seperately, in the
context of makefile.[nt|win]

All makefile projects are set up with the RECURSE=0 flag.  This prevents
absurdly nested builds... for 1.3.x, the build for the modules looks like

ApacheModule*.dsp (12 of them) projects depend on:
  ApacheCore.dsp which depends on:

Ergo, building all ApacheModule*.dsp projects wastes 66 nmakes :-)

The developer studio understands this nonesense, and uses a postal 
walk route to figure out what to build, in what order.  We do the 
same thing, by hand, in the

Hope that answers the concern
