Although I've tweaked them for the past 10 years for separate APR vs httpd
builds, my headless build environments all had relied on .mak files.

CMake is essentially there, but I would never have figured out what httpd
was doing if I couldn't easily bring in httpd project files into Visual
Studio '98 a long time ago,, instrument it for browser source code
references, and toggle JIT debugging and step through within a few hours of
first digging into httpd 1.3.10.

I hope we keep things that simple, zero-intervention httpd builds, and
GUI/guided build environments such as visual studio, eclipse, etc
