Thanks much to Steve Chilton for adding symbology for mosques to mapnik. The mappers here are very pleased!

Did find some problems with the osm.xml checked into SVN. It's referencing files in different locations, and has a number of other configuration options that aren't generic.
Also, discovered that renderd will crash if any of the referenced symbols in osm.xml aren't present in the local filesystem.

What is the best way to install new configuration file, along with all the needed symbols?

Also, there are other improvements needed for the Muslim world. For instance, the symbols for hospitals here are a crescent and a cross, not just a cross. Guess it will require an additional tag to specify a muslim hospital. If anyone has time to help work on new symbols for our work here in the West Bank, the contribution would be very welcome.
