Firstly, launching httpd with -X (no forking, no detaching) makes any
debugging project much easier.

Secondly, debuggers allow you to pre-load dynamically loaded shared
object modules.  Your other two alternatives, are to set a delayed
breakpoint on a soon-to-be-loaded module, or finally you can simply
set a breakpoint in the mainline code after the config file (and
therefore, loadable modules) are processed.
