I was trying to print it out with my PHP script, but it looks like it's always empty. On the
other hand, REQUEST_URI gives me what I expect. I was grepping a little in httpd-2.0.54 sources
and found no place wher REQUEST_FILENAME is set (grep -r REQUEST_FILENAME *). REQUEST_URI
seems to be set here (I'm not sure, I really don't code C (-: ):

(on my Linux server with PHP module 4.3.11 probably broken)?

If I remember correctly, REQUEST_FILENAME is set only by mod_rewrite, so
RewriteEngine On
will probably activate it.
