NetWare 5.0+Service Pack 5
Starting Apache yields path to httpd.conf being throughly broken:

done as just starting Apache   or
SYS:APACHE/SYS:APACHE/whatever I type after the -f flag

Note the duplicate volume:directory prefix forced in by Apache, no matter what.
This is using the pre-built binary from the Apache web site put together in
a .zip file; downloaded last night.
This is not a NW search path side effect; it is a coding error in Apache.
Install according to your docs (unzip to root of sys:).
No. I don't have money to purchase the MetroWorks compiler to fix matters
from sources.
