Looking at thttpd (2.25b-6). I don't regilarily use it, so I just looked
at the man page and provided configuration file. Maybe I missed

Aparantly there is just a single cgi_pat directive. It can include 
multiple patterns, though. There is no 'include' option to include a 
file from a different package.

BTW: it seems that thttpd shares the same .htpasswd file format with
apache. Though it needs it in the same directory and it only applies to
that directory.
