Subject Re: official httpd VC9 builds

Right, command line builds where part of the reason for still using
VC6. Alteast that rings a vague bell.

If we provide VC9 builds for 2.4+, we could do a 32-bit and 64-bit one then...
But that would mean 3 (or 2) binary packages for windows.... which
could result in a lot of extra work :(

How are the current binaries for windows made? Script or manual?
