Your technique looks basically correct.

Do you have any other <Directory>/<Files>/<Location>, etc, blocks that
match the bugzilla entry or the index.cgi?  If so, do they have any
Options directives?

Just on a whim, try adding this to the END of you httpd.conf:

<Location /bugzilla/index.cgi>
Options +ExecCGI

That should not be necessary.  If it works, it means there is another
Options directive someplace overriding your first one.

Also, are there any symbolic links involved in this path?

If none of that helps, you may want to place your httpd.conf on a website
someplace where we can look at it.
