It was a _joke_. A _JOKE_.

In any case, there are, no doubt, some OSs that don't have shared
libs, or whose shared lib's are incredibly broken. If we have the
Apache build process not only build gcc (we'll call it ap_gcc) as
well as the GNU lib and sfio, we won't worry about how to implement
anything :) :) :) :) :)

In fact, what we should do is have the Apache build process built
it's own virtual UNIX machine, which then installs itself on
the platform at hand.

I'm sorry... I just can't resist :)
