[Xymon] open one page in main view to public

Hi Rolf,

this might give away more details than you want: If you have `XYMONDLOGSTATUS=DYNAMIC` (the default) in `xymonserver.cfg` and allow the external users to view the detailed status via `svcstatus.sh` they can simply edit the URL and view info from another host (they need to know the hostname but obscurity should not be a security measure).

You _can_ restrict access to the CGIs but it is … heavily under-documented (user `—access=/etc/xymon/xymongroups`-parameter with `CGI_SVC_OPTS` in `cgioptions.cfg` to use the group-file handling access …) there may be some docs on the ML.

Maybe building a separate page-set (see `xymongen(1)`), build the status-pages static too with `XYMONDLOGSTATUS=STATIC` for that page-set and copy the img-resources to the destination-directory is a better maintainable and safer option.

If I do this using apache all graphics, header und footer is missing, only the "ALT" text is presented. Any way to change this without giving access to other pages in xymon?
