[Samba] 3.0.x and AIX 5.3

As of AIX 5.3 sys/var.h is loaded in sys/proc.h & sys/space.h which are
loaded through a rather lengthy debacle of nested includes. AIX 5.2 does
not have this problem.

At any rate the result when using gcc 3.3 and vac 6.x:

Compiling web/cgi.c
web/cgi.c:33: error: redefinition of `struct var'
web/cgi.c: In function `cgi_load_variables':
web/cgi.c:138: error: structure has no member named `name'
web/cgi.c:139: error: structure has no member named `value'

Attached is a simple fix that just renames the "struct var" to "struct
cgi_var". 3.0.10 and 3.0.11pre1 compile successfully on 5.3 after this
