Thanks for looking this over, Stas - I know you're really busy
right now ... I've attached a diff incorporating the earlier
suggestions - this one also has an additional fix to adjust the
file names to be cleaned on Win32, which are different.

As far getting the right name for the Win32 binary goes with apxs
present, I don't think there's an ideal solution ... To
summarize, the problem is that apxs -q TARGET ( = httpd) is used
in Apache-Test for the name of the apache binary, whereas in
other places (in apxs itself, for example) it's used to represent
"httpd".conf. What I ended up doing here is following the
Apache-Test convention of setting $vars->{target} to Apache.exe
for Win32 - this means overwriting the apxs value, which isn't
great, but I guess as long as the same convention is followed
throughout the package, it should be OK.
