[FGS] Starting apache error: httpd cannot execute binary file

Hi Norm,

I think I have finally resloved the problem. The root cause of the install
error is that I did not change 'i386' to 'sparc64' in
fgs-dev/pkg_def/base/skeleton/etc/fgs/lib/install.sh. There are two places
that need to be modified in this install.sh file, one is in function
get_last_module_version() and the other is in function prepare_module().
After changing these two 'i386' to 'sparc64', I erased the debug line 'echo
$fgs_package' you instructed (otherwise function get_last_module_version()
will return wrong value which causes the strange error '! Cannot find file
...' in my last email). Then I rebuilt the installer mainly fgs-base.tar.gz
will be affected. The new installer was successfully built and I managed to
install it onto target sparc64 machine.

Thank you very much for your continuous help. I really appreciate it.
