>Description:
The first disadvantage of Apache's fnmatch.c is that it have several bugs
already fixed in FreeBSD fnmatch.c version, just compare latest
FreeBSD fnmatch.c code with Apache variant and you'll see.
Even if Apache moves to FreeBSD fnmatch.c variant, it will not be nice
since internal function occupes code space while standard version
taken from shared library once and not occupes memory.
>How-To-Repeat:

>Fix:
Add an option to compile with default system fnmatch.c for people
who knows what they do
