Looks the same:

$ httperf --server=tp1 −−add−header="X-Header: text\n" --print-request
httperf --print-request --client=0/1 --server=tp1 --port=80 --uri=/
--send-buffer=4096 --recv-buffer=16384 --num-conns=1 --num-calls=1
SH0:GET / HTTP/1.1
SH0:User-Agent: httperf/0.9.0
SH0:Host: tp1
SH0:
SS0: header 56 content 0
Maximum connect burst length: 0

Total: connections 1 requests 1 replies 1 test-duration 0.001 s


I'm running Debian 5.0 (Lenny). Here's the output from uname -a:
Linux domU-12-31-39-02-F4-A7 2.6.21.7-2.fc8xen #1 SMP Fri Feb 15
