No, at this point we are trying to find out where "typo3" path is to
include "init.php", which will then set TYPO3_OS.

The solution in the if-construct doesn't work under Windows anyway
(there is no $_SERVER['PWD']). Maybe we could try using getcwd()? I
wonder why Kasper didn't try it with that function in the first place.
Maybe there are some caveats about it (e.g. regarding symlinked
installations). But because of those obscure things, I wouldn't dare
change that code at this point.
