The systems been available for nearly a week now.  There has been only
one response regarding it so far.  AFAIK, no progress has been made.  I
am aware that everyone here is a volunteer, and am not berating anyone. 
Rather, I'm simple providing information as I have it.

In the meantime, I began looking at other problem report management
tools.  Of the ones found, I tried Bugzilla.  During the installation of
Bugzilla I found it to be heavily Perl based similar to the Gnatsweb
interface with which I've had so much trouble.  However, after a minor
snag concerning Bugzilla and mod_perl (it doesn't use it, yet), I have a
fully functional Bugzilla installation.

Based on this, I think it's fairly safe to rule out the following:
- most all concerns over the web server, as Bugzilla is using the same
web server configuration I attempted with Gnatsweb (minus of course
- most all concerns regarding the Perl installation (v5.6.1) as Bugzilla
is heavily dependent on Perl also.

I say "most all concerns" for both of these, because I am aware that
while they both use the same applications, they do so in different ways.

I would still like to get Gnatsweb functional for a comparison.  So, the
system will remain available for this purpose for a while longer (at
least until after the new year).
