THE FIX was adding this arg to httpd_flags: '-c /var/www/cgi-bin'

When asked why I prefer NetBSD to all the rest, my answer has always been, "Because they are always civil and kind to a moron like me."

The present question, about httpd and cgi-bin, is a perfect example; no one went out of their way to say that, "Obviously Bob, while floundering around trying to get cgi-bin to work, you installed bozohttpd, and took advantage of one of its differences from httpd."

And forgive me of course for chewing up yet more bandwidth that isn't free of charge to NetBSD (or, in fact anyone else making noise out here in cyberspace.)
