Thanks for the reference Jeff! 

Unfortunately it is missing the #1 bit we need to pull off a free 
build of httpd or apr, and that is nmake :(

It looks like, with a free make and awk though, the end user could
build all of apache with this compiler.  Hmmm, didn't the asf have some
sort of make environment (ant anyone :-?)

It also means folks have a full set of Win32 API headers/link stubs
legitimately obtained, that if someone built under mingw/cygwin/other
environments they don't have to grab a full-blown, overstuffed PSDK :)
