Well, you don't mention what version of apache you are using or where
you got it from.

Personally, I have never seen a 403 error that was not caused by unix
permissions *and* failed to log anything to the error log.  If you
can't figure it out, then next thing I would try is doing a fresh
install from a version downloaded from and using a
fresh install tree that you create yourself.
