There are various flaws in the build, report them to dev@httpd or collect
them in bugzilla reports, and mind the existing reports which might already
solve your problem.

Since there is no MinGW port maintainer, this often falls apart, sorry there
is nothing we can do if a platform's community does not participate with or
engage the developers with patches.

You don't use the -win32-src package because that package is for building
on the Microsoft Windows platform.  If you want to build for a faux-unix
platform you would obtain the usual tarball.
