An nph- CGI program is one that sends its own HTTP response headers to the 
client, so the server just passes the CGI output through and doesn't add 
headers.  The server identifies programs as such by looking at the first 
4 characters of the program name to see if it matches "nph-".  It makes 
little sense to have an nph- program run from an include, which is why 
Apache refuses to do so.
