Frontpage extensions?

Um, not so quick.

1. The microsoft supplied binaries (and www/frontpage port) require 
compat3x libraries, which have known vulnerabilities and are forbidden.
You must get the ones. (same file name, different compilation)

2. They changed an images path in the different compilations, so you'll
have to s/WTI_ADM/WTI_BIN/ on fpstatic.c for www/mod_frontpage to work

I've submitted patches for both of these, but the patch maintainers aren't
paying attention apparently.
