Well, any script or HTML page that uses this type of path fails. HTML,
PHP, PERL, you name it.

In any of the above pages or scripts.

What I mean is that no error is sent to the browser nor generated in
the log files -- in the case of say, a PHP script. Execution stops
cold when it reaches this point. Removing the "./" allows the script
to go forward. Thus my question -- how do I allow the
"./some/path/here" type path to be used in scripts, pages, etc that
are served by Apache?

Strange. The browser doesn't seem to have a problem resolving this
sort of path on other systems, so why would it fail silently when
accessing pages or scripts on this server? It doesn't seem to be a
UNIX exception, as the script for phpMyAdmin (an SQL admin tool using
PHP) is written with ./some/path/here paths all over the place.
