Uff, this is a lot of stuff. Nice work.
Only some small suggestions:

mod_auth_digest.xml:

Since digest
authentication is not as widely implemented as basic
authentication, you should use it only in controlled
environments.


mod_authz_groupfile.xml:
> <example><title>Example:</title>

> inefficient; <directive module="mod_authz_dbm"
> >AuthDBMGroupFile</directive> should be used instead.</p>

I would not say "should". Be less restrict, maybe
"AuthDBMGroupFile has a better performance" or something else.


Another point:
The user file should be explained in more detail, maybe within
the auth tutorial. I'm missing an explanation of the differences 
between user file for basic and digest authentication. 
mod_authn_file only describes a file for basic authentication.
The possible colon after the password should also be mentioned.

But this could be done later.
