Subject Re: Discuss: Dropping dsw/dsp files

Building with GUI must be possible, always ! That is just the very strong point for building
windows;  do not degrade. 

Btw OT, VC11 is around the corner, with also c  language changes, maybe better wait for that.

from the installbin project, and when I have hammered out the specific problems, use said
installbin to just copy the files into place.

needed apr_crypto anyway. Not such an easy task to do via makefile.
