I wouldn't say "merged", although I believe Ovies has adopted
suggestions from me and I from him.

Not "core dumps".  It simply freezes after serving one page.  It's
still alive enough that it will stop with "apachectl stop", and
I can restart it to serve one more page.

I based my port on conditional compilation in src/os/unix.  Ovies expressed
a dislike for this approach, and created a new src/os/os390 directory.
Possibly as an effect of this, possibly because of my otherwise
minimalist approach, possibly because I've left loose ends (other
than the "-X' defect) my patch is about half the size of Ovies's.
I haven't tried Ovies's patch on my system.  I last resynced my
patch with the CVS snapshot at 19991208231201; something happened
yesterday that broke it again -- I haven't resynced it again.

Alas, I haven't done a thorough review of Ovies's work.
