Are you saying that a cgi-bin should go into ${PREFIX}/www/appname, too?
That would require the sysadmin to set ExecCGI for all of ${PREFIX}/www.

Perhaps you expand on this a little and tell me where the following
should go:
1) HTML files that are to be server by ${HTTPD}
2) cgi-bin's that are to be executed by ${HTTPD}
3) Data that is not to be accessible either way like e.g. a htpasswd

Thank you,
