The core of the server is more than http_core.c, it mingles into some
modules (eg. mod_cgi) where it shouldn't.  However, there is an awful lot
of code (mainly modules) that simply doesn't need to be completely or even

a good thing anyway, and most importantly it gives a tree that can be
compiled _somehow_ even if it doesn't work, doesn't compile completely,
