apxs is not required to run Apache-Test or the perl-framework.  it is
required to build any supporting *.c modules, though.

anyway, in the following dialog I removed the apxs binary for that apache

[geoff@jib perl-framework]$ perl Makefile.PL -httpd

[geoff@jib perl-framework]$ t/TEST -conf
[warning] cleaning out current configuration
[warning] cannot build c-modules without apxs
[warning] reconfiguration done

[geoff@jib perl-framework]$ t/TEST
/apache/1.3/static/perl-5.8.3/bin/httpd -d /src/httpd-test/perl-framework/t
-f /src/httpd-test/perl-framework/t/conf/httpd.conf -D APACHE1 -D
using Apache/1.3.30-dev
        all skipped: apache version 2 required, this is version 1
        all skipped: no apxs configured

if apxs is being invoked but isn't available you may have a leftover sitting around which you can safely remove.  or you didn't
explicitly pass -httpd or something like that, which you ought to be able to
do via t/TEST -conf -httpd /path/to/httpd as well.
