Hmm...good point. What #ifdef protection should I use?

This *should* be handled by APR, but I think that will take a lot more
work and for now SysV Sem is broken whenever we use setuid(). We need to
abstract out some concept of permissions that works across all platforms
and can be used for things like this. In this case, it would be useful
to perscribe to the apr_global_mutex.h interface that we want a lock
that is accessible to the httpd child processes. I have no idea how we
can do this across the different types of authn/authz frameworks on our
various platforms.
