How do we incorporate additional shared objects into this such as the
subversion mod_dav_svn.so? I've had terrible luck following the cookbook
at apache (http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/dso.html) or that at
cygwin (http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/dll.html). I tried a shortcut 
which was copying over the svn module packaged in subversion on cygwin

cygcheck -l subversion | grep dav | grep dll

and copying it to the modules dir as 

-rwxr-x---  1 W014786 None 85K Jun 24 14:42 /cygdrive/c/Program Files/Apache

but the win32 native apache from httpd.apache.org would not start. My concern
is that if I install the new 2.0 pkg you've just released, I shall encounter
the same issue building the .so (.dll - whatever) under cygwin.

Any suggestions?
