Reply seemd to be missing :(
So i'll post again.

First i updated awk.exe, i seem to have had the same one as online, i
updated anyway to be sure.

This time i wanted to do a full build with zlib and ssl.

First Problem:
SSL build commands as described in the documenation didn't work.
These commands however did:
perl Configure --openssldir=C:/Apache21/bin VC-WIN32
nmake -f ms\ntdll.mak

once that was compiled i unpacked apr-iconv into the correct folder.

I then opend apache.dsw in and let it convert it to a sln file.
I then tried to build apache from cmd(using command promt).

I got some errors on apr, aprutil and apriconv, after removing the
ending "," is the rc files for those library's it went past that stage
so all was good.

Untill i hit zlib, it didn't compile it kept complaining about
zlib.lib. (i tried zlib 1.1.4 and zlib 1.2.1)
I then went into srclib\zlib\projects\visualc6 and opened zlib.dsw.
Then i build "LIB Release" it generated zlib.lib which i moved to to

Now the building contineud on till the file copieing part. there it
was stuck. It seems giving \apache21 as install dir didn't go to wel.
once i made it c:\apache21 the build went fine!

Now all seemed to be fine.
The config files where created and no error's.

I tried writing a simple perl script to delete all the pdb files in
the install dir but my perl skill's aren't so great and I faild.
So I manual delete them to save diskspace.

I then edited the listen directive to be 8080 so I could test it a bit
along side my other apache instance. 
It started without a problem.

So asside from the problems whit the rc's of the apr projects and the
zlib problems all seems to build fine out of the box without any
problems(well windows users need to run first)

I hope this information is usefull.

I would be more than willing to do more testing if needed.
