System: NetBSD 8.0_STABLE NetBSD 8.0_STABLE (GENERIC) #0: Sun Aug 5 00:07:14 CEST 2018 amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
	The "FILES" section of bozohttpd(8) says:

     bozohttpd looks for a couple of special files in directories that allow
     certain features to be provided on a per-directory basis.  In addition to
     the .htpasswd used by HTTP basic authorization, if a .bzdirect file is
     found (contents are irrelevant) bozohttpd will allow direct access even
     with the -r option.

	However, the -r option is not documented anywhere else in the
	man page -- it's not in SYNOPSIS and not in the OPTIONS
	section either.

	Read the man page.
	Glancing at the code it doesn't look like the code supports
	the '-r' option either, so this appears to be a remnant of
	something which needs to be mopped up.
	Sorry, don't know what -r was meant to imply.
