[RDD] Remove audio cart

Rivendell uses Apache and a web cgi script to do the 
importing/exporting.  This was so that you could lock down the /var/snd 

It does seem confusing until you realise all you need to do is make sure 
the Rivendell web components are in place correctly.

First things first, check to see you have the web files in place: 

If you get a 404 error then the Apache config hasn't been put in place 
properly (or the files aren't even there).

Usually on a source install you copy rd-bin.conf to /etc/apache/conf.d/ 
then restart the Apache service.  There is a gotcha in that if you 
didn't specify the --libexecdir flag then the generated rd-bin.conf 
won't have the right path settings and you'll notice it still has a 
variable name in place (which obviously won't work).

The tricky part is depending on your distribution, the Rivendell web 
files should be copied to different places (I'm not sure where they get 
copied if you don't use the --libexecdir flag).

Suffice it to say you either copy them directly to something like 
/var/www/rd-bin and then amend the rd-bin.conf appropriately or you copy 
them somewhere in usr space and change the path in rd-bin.conf to 
reflect that.

Ubuntu seems to like /usr/local/libexec but most other distros I've 
tried just go straight to /var/www/rd-bin
