I think I found the problem (this is being forwarded to the development group
as well), at least as far as I can see it under 5.3.  The default "Group"
directive in httpd.conf points to "#-1" - using that I saw exactly your
behavior on 5.3 (exiting without warning message - with the -X it core
dumped).  When I changed it to "32766" (the GID for "nogroup") it returned
"httpd: bad group name 32766", and when I set it to "nogroup", it
successfully fired up.  So, try changing your "Group" to "nogroup", or 
whatever is equivalent for your server, and we'll have this fixed in the 
next release, meanwhile I'll note this in the compat_notes.  Thanks!

Make sure you have either XBITHACK compiled, or are setting the right 
document type in srm.conf, whichever way you're doing SSI's.
