For my applications, I've been using includes and other file addressing by 
using the doc root as the base dir.   e.g.
require_once $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . 

Recently, I ran into a problem with a new installation on a shared host where 
the doc root was assigned in an unusual manner. I rather not require setting a 
custom base dir [instead of $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']'] for my applications.

So, I was wondering if it would be good practice to use the set_include_path() 
and add the base dir for my applications.  I've used this for dealing with Pear 
function files on shared servers and had no problems.

Need some guidance regarding this subject.
