New package: mod_suphp

hello all,

I'd like to submit mod_suphp as a new package to extras. As I do not have 
CVS access yet, someone will have to sponsor me.

SPEC: http://home.bawue.de/~ixs/suphp.spec
SRPMS: http://home.bawue.de/~ixs/mod_suphp-0.5.2-3.src.rpm

suPHP is an apache module for executing PHP scripts with the permissions
of their owners. It consists of an Apache module (mod_suphp) and a setuid
root binary (suphp) that is called by the Apache module to change the uid
of the process executing the PHP interpreter.

A similar effect can be achieved with suExec, only between 5 and 10 
times slower.

There are no known licensing or other legal issues known concerning this 

Note: Even though suphp was recently updated to 0.6.0, I decided against 
updating the package to the newly released version as it proved to not 
work at all on two of my test machines.
