Correction to subject: As of last night, CVS httpd-2.0 is unbuildable,
never mind unusable :-)

Alpha code? From the output, it sometimes looks like Alpha code running on
x86! :-)

(snip report about duplicated headers, which I've also mentioned before)

Yep; I've seen two (DIFFERENT) headers at once, too; one 200 OK, followed
by the whole set of headers, then another 200 OK, and SOME of those
headers again - WTF?!


Right now, 2.0 doesn't look ready for an alpha, let alone a beta. Is
anyone looking at the broken header problem yet???
