>Description:

I've got several vhosts on my server, but they are not located
under the main server's docroot tree, so they won't initially work
with suexec.

I only use ScriptAliases - This way I am able to control the use 
of CGI by a restricted set of users, and they name their cgi as they want.

I would like suexec to work with ScriptAliased directories.

[workaround - I disabled the htdocs path checking of suexec, that's
still safe enough for my site]
>How-To-Repeat:

Have ScriptAlias directories outside htdocs.
>Fix:

Makes suexec more complicated: if script path not in docroot, load
an alternate list of trusted ScriptAliased directories from a safe file.

As most sites does not need this, provide it as a makefile option.

Provide an utility to compile such a list from httpd.conf and eventually
accessible .htaccess files.
