Okay, so anything else you put there, that doesn't automaticly compile
on Linux, BSD, and/or SunOS we can veto?  Is this the new rule now? 

I'm not going get into an argument here... but as you say USE some
common sense... how would I know what HPUX does, or does not have
and I'm not just including it for my health here.... it's needed.  I tried using
a hardcode approch, but as some other members said ( correctly I might
add ) is that what's the point of removing a hard code for another hard code
so I included paths.h which should point to the right location for each 
system.  Now if you say that HP doesn't have paths then PLEASE patch
my patch to where ever you think the TMP variable should point to, or
give me access to your machine, so I can figure out where it goes.

Who the hell made you the king of hill?  To say which patch can and 
can't be included.... if you took it upon yourself to include the patches 
from the for_apache_.xxxx directory, I don't think that gives you automatic
veto power over any patch you don't like.
