patch to preserve WWW-authenticate headers in CGI responses

When parsing CGI response headers, apache rewrites the WWW-Authenticate headers
in a standards-compliant way.  Unfortunately, popular browsers (Firefox 3.6.15
at least) do not correctly process the rewritten headers.  This breaks
completely breaks authentication when multiple WWW-Authenticate headers are
sent from a CGI script.

There is already code to preserve Set-Cookie headers in util_script.c. 
Replicating this code for WWW-Authenticate fixes the issue.

The attached patch implements this fix in the most trivial way.
