Nope - the old version required awk to -build- the sources. Now, awk
is only needed to customize the .conf scripts, and in it's absense, well
do it yourself by hand. awk's no longer required.
The solution as mentioned several times is a custom-build step to invoke
rc.exe, where none of the versions of visualstudio will corrupt the cmd.

So does the windows bundle; grab
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/apr/apr/trunk/build/cvtdsp.pl - and in the
httpd-2.2.3 tree, just invoke
perl cvtdsp.pl -2005
This won't be necessary in 2.2.4 - wouldn't have been in 2.2.3 if this
security issue hadn't popped up.
