Nope, not overly common that I can think of.  Well, assuming you know, 
of course, that it is supposed to become a daemon and detach from your
tty, but just keep running in the background.

Best bet is run it through a debugger, use something like
ktrace/strace/trace/truss if you have it or add debugging codes to see
where it dies. 

Do you get a "Server configured -- resuming normal operations" log in the
error log?

In the past, patches for different platforms have been integrated into the
source without anyone in the Apache group being able to verify that they
work right, but things like support are much easier if we have someone
with access to the platform.

That wouldn't be a bad idea.  It will run on x86 hardware, right?
