I really hope that this isn't the case as I really don't have the weeks required to get a
server to build a compile environment and gather all the bits and pieces that I'd need to
do that.

Could that be the BIG_SECURITY_HOLE compile option?
Not sure if that still exists (I don't use it)!

If you have your users' usernames and passwords, you could
also set the Authorization header from the Proxy-Authorization.
Then configure the server for authentication and your
scripts will get REMOTE_USER.
