Disable Rendezvous' tracking of non-customized home pages Internet

The standard httpd.conf file installed by Apple has mod_rendezvous_apple directives that turn off Rendezvous advertising for the default site, but turn it on for user sites that have been customized. The test for whether a site has been customized or not involves comparing its index.html file to the one in the user template folder.

Unfortunately, it appears that users' index.html files are not (always?) replaced during software installs and updates, so that the system thinks users have customized their sites when in fact they haven't. This can result in useless clutter in the Rendezvous menu in Safari and elsewhere.

The solution is simply to copy /System -> Library -> User Template -> English.lproj -> Sites -> index.html to your Sites directory.
