Apache 2.0.54 cgi and Solaris 10 Summary (for now)

I have the issue fixed (sort of).
Thanks to Helmut Kreft for suggesting that I

>Use 'prefork' instead.
I have been running the worker MPM for a long time, but something in 
solaris 10 doesn't like it for me now, so switching to a prefork build 
allowed my CGI scripts to run.

Also thanks to Karl Rossing for pointing out that S 10 comes with 
Apache, however I want to keep my versions the same on all my servers 
(and play with the build so I can easily add/remove modules).

Thanks as well to the 9 or so people who let me know they were out of 
the office and the one person who informed me they are no longer 
employed at that email address :-).

If anyone else has an idea of what could be causing my issue in a worker 
build, I would really like to get back to that if possible (at least for 
my web server).

Here is the initial issue again.
