	For DECstations running Ultrix, /bin/sh isn't the "standard"
shell (drat...). However, the DEC supplied /bin/sh5 does the right thing. 
Building the configuration in the Ultrix environment requires that the
Configure and helper/* scripts be changed to #!/bin/sh5 rather than #!/bin/sh

This can easily be accomplished with a simple 'Build.ultrix' script, which
could be added to your distribution in the src/ directory, with a note
in the INSTALL file to use this for Ultrix rather than Configure:

# name: Build.ultrix
# for Apache web server sources
# modify the Configure scripts to use /bin/sh5 instead of /bin/sh
# for the Ultrix environment, and run Configure afterwards as normal:

echo 'modifying scripts for Ultrix /bin/sh5'
for i in Configure helpers/GuessOS helpers/PrintPath; do
	cp $i .jnk
	sed -e 's/sh/sh5/' .jnk > $i
	chmod +x $i
rm -f .jnk

# run Configure:

# the end :-)
