I only meant that I hadn't much of a clue what the errors meant
but I can provide more generalized techniques for getting Apache
running again. :)

This is where my opinion diverges. I rarely do major architectural changes
on a production server unless there's no other way. The issue I have is
that there are multiple failure paths which make troubleshooting
exponentially more complex.

Just trying to save you some of the pain I've put myself through. :)

Yes, it's not exactly clean but it reduces the number of failure paths for
each iteration of build/test.

This failed for me with other errors. I'm going to try to reproduce your
situation. I'll get back to you in a bit.
