While trying to install Apache::Test on a Perl 5.6.1 Linux system, I am 
getting the following error:

!!! no test server configured, please specify an httpd or an apxs other than 
/usr/bin/apxs or put either in your PATH. For example:
t/TEST -httpd /path/to/bin/httpd

I placed the path to the httpd daemon in my PATH environment as recommended, 
but I continue to receive the above error. I tracked this error message back 
to Apache::TestRun which checks the value of httpd from the configuration. 
This gets set in Apache::TestConfig::configure_httpd.

My debugging showed that this subroutine is only checking the /usr/sbin 
directory for the httpd file. Either I have something wrong with my setup or 
the configure_httpd subroutine is broken. BTW, I am using Bash as my shell.

I was able to get past this hurdle by running the test suite using t/TEST 
-httpd /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd
