Do you have the httpd-devel package installed? IIRC this failure can 
occur when Apache-Test finds /usr/sbin/httpd but not /usr/sbin/apxs.

I only ever build directly from the source repos not a tarball, and use:

  perl Makefile.PL -apxs /usr/sbin/apxs
  make && ./t/TEST

running as a local user not root (it's simpler that way); this works
fine with the RHEL3 httpd, unless you have enough modules installed that
you hit the dynamic module limit.
