  Subject: Fix IdentityCheck with Virtual Hosts
  Affects: http_main.c, util.c
  ChangeLog: Ensure that rfc931() is given a sockaddr describing the local
          address (virtual host) that is currently in use.

  From: ???
  Subject: Correctly support EXTRA_LIBS and OS-dependent libs (AUX_LIBS)
  Affects: Configuration Makefile.tmpl
  Changelog: EXTRA_LIBS was used for two separate purposes in Configuration,
        firstly, to provide libraries needed by modules, and secondly, to
        provide OS-dependent libraries need globally by Apache. The second
        use defeats the first, so a new variable, AUX_LIBS is introduced to
        handle the second use.
