ServerRoot does not have to be the directory above {bin,libexec,sbin}.
It should be the directory above {conf,logs}.

When running in this scenario, you do have to have absolute paths to
your apache modules, eg:

LoadModule status_module /usr/local/libexec/apache22/

rather than:

LoadModule status_module libexec/apache22/

The disadvantage of doing it this way is that you have to specify full
paths to all your modules. The disadvantage of doing it your way is
that your ServerRoot is not your ServerRoot...
