Just to clarify, the Unix directories in the source code refer to the Unix
98 standard, which really means POSIX.  Any platform that can be
implemented using POSIX functions (or comes close to being implemented
with POSIX) uses the Unix directory.

Win9x works, although some APR features do not work, because Win9x can't
implement them.  Mac OS 9 doesn't currently work, but if anybody wanted to
try to port APR to Mac OS 9, those patches would be appreciated.  I really
don't know how hard it would be to port APR to OS 9.
