 The two scripts in cgi-bin now work without the NEED_HASHBANG_EMUL being defined.  Is there
something that will break if we don't define it?

   Prior to Release 8, OS/390 UNIX System Services does not support the magic number

IBM still supports OS/390 v1r2 (and we still use it).  I advocate leaving HASHBANG_EMUL
on until IBM ends support of v2r7.

this patch.
