GCC version
Apache does not find or use the suexec program, even when the SUEXEC_BIN variable
and file permissions (4711) and ownership (root) are correct.

I have tested this by using identicle httpd.h and conf/* files for both releases
1.2b11 and 1.2.0. 1.2b11 works as expected, reporting

Configuring Apache for use with suexec wrapper

whereas 1.2.0 does not.

A further test running a cgi script to print the output of 'id' proved that 1.2.0
was failing to use suexec
The script I used was as follows:

# id.cgi
echo -e 'Content-type: text/plain\n\n'
echo `id`

Running this script from within a users public_html directory should give the
users id, not the id of the user running the web server.
