I use cern-httpd in preference to http-gw mainly because it gives more
meaningful error messages back to the client. I don't understand your desire
to run the proxy as chroot, as (by definition) it will only be forwarding
requests to other locations.
I actually run two cern-httpd daemons - one as a 'regular' WWW server and
one as a proxy. They coexist peacefully on the one machine.
