Oops, this was a Unix statement (now out-of-date :) ).  I have no idea
why mod_negotiation is failing on Win32.  testfile.exe just ran fine
for me on Win98.  I don't have a way to run Apache on Win32, so no
guesses on the failure other than that the problem is most likely in
srclib/file_io/win32/*.c :)
