     always recognizing configuration changes made using the autoconf
     setup.  [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Allow the buildconf process to find the config.m4 files in the correct
     order.  Basically, we can now name config.m4 files as configdd.m4,
     and we will sort them correctly when inserting them into the build
     process.  [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Get mod_cgid to use apr calls for creating the actual CGI process.
     This also allows mod_cgid to use ap_os_create_priviledged_process,
     thus allowing for SuExec execution from mod_cgid.  Currently, we do
     not support everything that standard SuExec supports, but at least
     it works minimally now. [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Allow SuExec to be configured from the ./configure command line.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Update some of the docs in README and INSTALL to reflect some of
     the changes in Apache 2.0 [Cliff Woolley ]

  *) If we get EAGAIN returned from the call to apr_sendfile, then we
     need to call sendfile again.  This gets us serving large files
     such as apache_2.0a9.tar.gz on FreeBSD again. [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Get the support programs building cleanly again.
     [Cliff Woolley ]

  *) The Apache/Win32 Apache.exe and dll's now live in bin.  The
     current directory logic now backs up over bin/ to determine the
     server root from the Apache.exe path.

  *) Apache/Win32 now follows the standard conventions of
     loadable modules, dynamic libs are all named libfoo.dll, and the populates the include, lib and libexec directories.

  *) Apache is now IPv6-capable.  On systems where APR supports IPv6,
     Apache gets IPv6 listening sockets by default.  Additionally, the
     Listen, NameVirtualHost, and  directives support IPv6
     numeric address strings (e.g., "Listen [fe80::1]:8080").

  *) Modify the install directory layout.  Modules are now installed in
