I have committed the changes in r12907, along with changes to the
builds of python and php mapscript.

building steps:

./configure [previous opts] --prefix=/usr/local
sudo make install
cp /usr/local/bin/mapserv [cgi-bin-directory] #do *not* directly copy
the mapserv binary from our top-level source directory, as it is a
wrapper script and not compiled machine code.

python and php mapscript are both built with make && make install. The
other mapscript flavors will probably not compile, I will get back to
them in a second step if no one wants to volunteer on the task.

please report back any issues in this thread or with a trac ticket.
