The two errors are left over from the original split between SVR4 and BSD.
Most modern versions of Unix have combined these to be the same error.  I
thoroughly dislike the fact that we have to compensate for it.

Why didn't we have this problem in 1.3?  Everything I am looking at in the
1.3 tree checks for EAGAIN.  We have one platform that defines EAGAIN to
be EWOULDBLOCK in ap_config.h

Are we sure this is an actual issue?
