Wot is the default directory into which this IfDefine directive will 
look for the said script.

I tried all combinations under /home/user/apache/ , 
/home/user/apache/conf, /home/user/apache/bin/ or the directory from 
where I call httpd.
the directive inside httpd.conf looks somethign like this:

<IfDefine IPAvailable>

Unless i specify the complete path in the IfDefine like :
<IfDefine /home/user/apache/IPavailable>

and also along with the -D option for httpd
ie. httpd -D /home/user/apache/IPavailable

it duz not seem to work.

Shud the script be under the ServerRoot , which is /home/user/apache/ for me.
