Something like https://github.com/appsuite/oss-httpd-build ?. The
downside is that there is no corresponding mak/Makefile.gather-win,
but my focus is on adding mak/Makefile.test-win first.

The Ubuntu on Windows makes the unix/bash work out fine, (with
a splash of apr-1.6.3\build\lineends.pl from src/ added for editability
and behavior) and the two missing gather steps are falling back
from a project's candidate tarball to their last release tarball, and
validating gpg sigs. These later two things are hard enough to
make me swap out the approach of Makefile/bash for python
(not sure I have the patience to attack PowerShell this moment.)
