"GET xxx HTTP/1.1" and NCSA/1.5.1 server (wwwlib 4.1b1)

There is a problem with WWWLIB 4.1b1 and NCSA/1.5.1 (maybe other
versions too, but at least with this). When WWWLIB sends a request
with HTTP/1.1, then NCSA server replies with "HTTP 200 ..." (instead
of "HTTP/1.0 200 ..").

	>telnet www.funet.fi 80
	Trying ...
	Connected to nic.funet.fi.
	Escape character is '^]'.
	GET / HTTP/1.1

	HTTP 200 Document follows
	Date: Wed, 07 Aug 1996 11:15:43 GMT
	Server: NCSA/1.5.1
	Last-modified: Thu, 27 Jun 1996 16:40:50 GMT
	Content-type: text/html
	Content-length: 2346


The problem comes from Library/HTTP.c, which tests the reply with

    if (strncasecomp(me->buffer, "http/", 5)) {
	int status;

and this doesn't match with the "HTTP 200 .." :-(

The NCSA responce may not be HTTP/1.0 conformant, but perhaps the
WWWLIB should allow plain "HTTP " and assume HTTP/1.0 in such case?
