+1... Really need a good wide beta-test on this, which seems the
best so far.

Sounds like we either ignore the warning, under the feeling
that regex isn't "official" Apache code (we're just borrowing
it) but this is much more mucky than we originally envisioned...
Most probably we should simply fix the warnings :/

-1... Isn't setlocale an ANSIism? Unless we can provide a replacement,
Ugg. (PS: Did everyone get the word about the problems with
setlocale, I think, in FreeBSD?)

I've got the patch... This would be more a feature than anything
else; after all, the entries _are_ right since the slots _should_
have Apache's PPID in them. Removing that from the output is fluff...

Ugly to add another new define for all entries in conf.h for one
use of a call... If no other alternatives, then we should wrap the
HPUX/Sol2.6 stuff (ie: only their entries in conf.h need be
adjusted) as needed. I'll look.

conf.h is included in httpd.h also...

+1 on waiting until we have a platform to work with :)

Another item: WRITEV stuff... so far, all platforms have writev
 but we need to keep this in the backs of our minds.
