 * Im sure Rob will tell you this bit...
 * @ Is there a httpd from NCSA for Solaris .....
 * No - at the momement as it stands it wont quite compile under Solaris.
 * That was as of a week or so back as I recall.

You need to copy the #define for getwd from the HPUX section into the
Solaris section in httpd.h. Or, you can compile it with the UCB
compatibility library. Or, you can use the Sun version already there using
binary compatibility.

 * If you have the binary compatability stuff installed I can confirm that
 * it runs very well under that. I have a SunOS 4.1.3 and a Solaris 2.3
 * machine sharing binaries and well the solaris machine (albeit with a
 * lighter load but less memory) is more than keeping pace with the 4.1.3
 * machine.... And well neither core dump. :)
 * (Oh and yes I have gone back to httpd 1.1 for the moment - its a long
 * story - but binary compat works there too :)

I'm thinking of yanking 1.2 from the server and telling people to use 1.1
until I've had a chance to fix things. There are a lot of problems with 1.2.
