Non-OS-specific (I hit it on 3).
NOTE:  This is the problem descibed in PR4584, so this is just additional
info for that.

   The problem described in PR4584 coms about when you wish to run Apache as root.

   You get a message about having to rebuild with -DBIG_SECURITY_HOLE

   The problem is that the message says to add it to src/Configuration.  In fact
(at least when using configure) you need to set CFLAGS in your environment.

   So, the text output from src/main/http_cors.c: line 1902 is wrong, which is what
the bug really is.  This is not mentioned in PR4584.


   Change the text to reflect the current method of configuring Apache.
