ok, that's an important point.  if these used to work with an identical
(static) httpd then something definitely broke recently.  personally, I've
never tried with a heavy-static httpd so I don't know how it used to behave.

ok, I think I see it.

anyway, check t/conf/extra.conf for <IfModule "mod_access.c"> - the
mod_access there is expanded from @ACCESS_MODULE" which is supposed to find
the right one (mod_access or mod_authz_host).  since it wasn't found, the
default mod_access was used and thus the .htaccess files would not be picked up.

funny that the call to need_access isn't stopping the tests, though - that
seems like a bug as well.

anyway, at this point we can probably wait for stas to show up, since I
wasn't following his changes of late.
