The problem with CMake is that it does not build all things, that AL and
AH put in their distributions. CMake will build Apr 1.6 and Apr-util
1.6, including apr_crypto_openssl-1.dll (1.0.2 or 1.1.0) in one go.
CMake will also build the Apache binaries in another go, but nothing of
Apr-iconv. So apriconv-1.lib, libapriconv-1.lib/dll and all of the 200+
so-files in apache24\bin\iconv will not be built by CMake.
You will have to use Apache.dsw or srclib\apr-util\aprutil.dsw or the
*.mak files in apr-util + the Makefile.win's in apr-util\(ces|css) to
build the iconv binaries.
