Hi Owen,

Thanks for your comments...  I appreciate your speedy response.

If it is no hassle, I would love to have your notes as an additional 
reference point.

Can I ask you to elaborate a little on the recompile process?  Do I have 
to completely recompile Apache's source code with the fixed file or can 
I simply recompile that particular file?  Now I actually use my gray 
matter, I think that may have been a stupid question.  Anyhow, the 
proposition still stands - can I compile a single file?
