Synopsis: undocumented incompatibility between Apache and NCSA-httpd

Actually I don't think Apache is correct in this case.  For example,
I did this:

cd htdocs/manual
echo Options -FollowSymLinks >.htaccess
cd ..
ln -s manual symlink

Then I accessed /symlink (or /symlink/) and got a 403, which is
the incompatibility that you're describing.  However if I access
/symlink/index.html it succeeds.  This is an inconsistency that
really shouldn't exist.  The symlink stuff is supposed to be tested
with the permissions of the parent directory.  I'm submitting a
patch for the rest of the group to consider.

Thanks for using Apache!
