no - cant be fixed. For whatever reason the idea is to have the function 
on all platforms - (but as I pointed out the fake stub part is not used 
by any other platform than probably BS2000):
int initgroups(const char *name, gid_t basegid)
#if defined(_OSD_POSIX) || defined(OS2) || defined(WIN32) || 
     return 0;

no, I'm fine with that too. I've added one in mpm_common.h since then it 
makes sense and avoids compiler warnings too for those platforms which 
compile mod_unixd.c and dont have HAVE_INITGROUPS defined:
