You checked ALL PARENT DIRECTORIES?  Are you using selinux?  Are you
using symlinks?  Have you tried to su to the User/Group specified in
httpd.conf and see if you can access the files?

Sure; first you need to find the code in apache that is denying
access, and then add an appropriate error log message to that code
path.  Easy, huh?

An alternative is to run the request under a debugger and step through
it until you see what is causing the problem.  See:
