Sorry I never noticed this in the STATUS file before, but this is exactly
the same thing I was seeing on my machine for a while.  Turns out if you
run the tests as root and don't give the apache user rights to the logs
directory, apache can't create the cgi-log, which causes all those tests
to fail because they expect that log to be there.  Change the directory
permissions to allow the apache user to write to that directory (normally
a verrrrry bad thing, I know, but this is just for testing) and it will
work.  Alternatively, we could change the test to put the scriptlog
someplace else...
