Description:make webvmail assumes that the host webserver directories are in one of
two directories. If either directory does not exist, make fails with a
simple "No http directory" or "No cgi-bin directory". That doesn't give
the user much direction so it added some hassle to look through Makefile
to see where it was -wanting- to install to and to then find my web
directories on my distribution and match them up.

I tweaked with Makefile so that:

1) The destination directories are fully parameterized by a single
arbirary assigment statement each. (i.e no assumptions are made later in
the code about the path form.)
2) If the default directories are not found, the error message now says
where to modify the Makefile.
3) Comments in the Makefile near the parameter assignment hint where to
look in apache conf file for the systems current configuration.


This is my first post, so I welcome corrections if I am supposed to be going about this differently. I should have my disclaimer up within 24 hours.

Disclaimer should now be on file.
