The cmake build for httpd doesn't build any support libraries; it assumes
they are built already.

I have two different samples now, at, which provide hints on how to put
everything together, since we don't have a typical-user-build-everything
script yet.  One is a Makefile and one is a .cmd script.  The Makefile lets
you build everything OR build/rebuild selected packages; the .cmd script
only goes from start to finish (or until failure) and doesn't let you
rebuild anything.

By "installed" it refers to having been built and the binaries installed.

If for example you build/install PCRE to c:/XXX with
-DCMAKE_BUILD_PREFIX=c:/XXX and you also build/install httpd to c:/XXX with
the same CMAKE_BUILD_PREFIX, then PCRE will be found automatically.

There's no default for the source of PCRE (or any other support library)
since the cmake lists only build one individual project.  (Building the
whole batch is a job for something else, that does the task of the examples

To build everything you need a script or makefile that ties together the
different builds, like the samples.
