As far as I can tell currently all binaries go to bin/.
But +1 to separate them correctly between bin/ and sbin/ and putting
their man pages into the correct section.

So I would propose to install

apxs
httpd
rotatelogs
apachectl
htcacheclean
logresolve
suexec
apu-1-config
checkgid
fcgistarter

into sbin/ and move ab.8 and logresolve.8 to section 1 of the man pages.
