Well, without the quotes, solaris sh chokes on it cause it evaluates it
to:

for f in ;

and it sas the semicolon is unexpected. Even the if block alone isn't
sufficient to protect things -- sh tries to parse the stuff inside the
if block and chokes there.

I'd prefer to do away with the section entirely -- there are no httpd
conf files, I get really sick of dealing with solaris sh stupidity like
this, and I don't see *any* value that the section in question brings.
Certainly it has brought me lots of headaches.

cheers --
