Subject [PATCH] again (might solve PR#2354)
Date Fri, 19 Jun 1998 10:49:22 GMT
Hi there.
If 1.3.1 is due for release in a couple of days, I'd ask you guys
to take a look at this little patch, that I suspect nobody
reviewed when I sent it nine days ago. Yeah, this time I put the
string "[PATCH]" in the subject, and I didn't forget the
attachment, but it didn't work out either ;-). The CHANGES:

  *) Changed the top Makefile.tmpl to install the test CGIs with
     execute permission, and to replace the "#!" header of printenv
     with the correct location of perl. [Alvaro Martinez Echevarria]

When I looked at PR#2354, I realized that right now the test CGIs
are not installed with execute permission, and also that printenv
does the risky assumption that perl is in '/usr/local/bin/perl'
(this last one is probably the cause behind the PR). Please note
that even if the CGIs are installed with +x permissions, they are
not configured in by default, so there shouldn't be any security
concern about this. These changes are minimal, and could probably
help newbie apache users.
