you need to be root in order to start Apache so its children run as root - 
the forced change to the nobody user was wrecking things for me.

anyway, enough on that :)

hmm, I would have thought that was necessary, but without trying it entirely 
I guess I won't know :)

anyway, I'll be back into the swing of things late this week and can help out.

BTW, are we still +1 on the have_apache_mpm() patch I posted last?  I know 
Bill had some thoughts on hitting up ap_mpm_query instead of httpd -V, but 
if we can agree on have_apache_mpm() as the API, then we can use the current 
implementation and I can play with ap_mpm_query in a bit.
