IMHO, Ttis is *really* yucky. A user should never have to edit any of the
source files, unless they have a really obsure OS (and I don't consider,
for example, IRIX or SunOS 4.1 to be obsure). Why not just tell them to
add "-Iregex" to CFLAGS and then always include <regex.h>? Or, even
better, add a


and then add $(REG_INC) to the .o.c and http_brintf.c entries in

Either way, the user only has to edit Configuration.
