Well, the problem is that it uses SUEXEC for its operation, and that is
quite Apache specific. Many platforms just default to apr_create_process(),
but Unix-ish platforms use SUEXEC.

Not quite sure whether this would go into server/, somewhere in a srclib/
package, or part of support/ (where suexec is).
