New Apache web server release

The Apache folks have released version 2.4.9 of their ubiquitous web server.  This one fixes a couple of security vulnerabilities along with some other bug fixes, one in mod_log_config having to do with issues with truncated cookies and one in mod_dav that was a potential denial of service.  Expect most of the Linux distros to apply the appropriate fixes shortly, but if you are building from source or running on a platform that won't push the updates to you, go grab the update.
