snap from src/Configure:

	LIBS="$LIBS -lcrypt $DBM_LIB"

so it should be linked in, IMO, but staticaly.
Should be link against the import lib -lgsbm.dll to have cyggdbm.dll

expat is not maintained by the Apache group itself, so it's an other
front here I guess.

https means SSL-enabled HTTP, which requires mod_ssl (or equivalent
other module) to be included. CAMP uses mod_ssl, but it's not part of
the core source distribution, but works OOTB for Cygwin :)

only for mod_ssl.
