It's somewhat unclear from this how you compiled apache as the paths
look simillar to those used by the debian 'package'. Are you trying to
use mod_dumpio from apache 2.2 with the debian 2.0?

What errors do you see when you try to start you server? Using "httpd
-e debug" (or apache2 or whatever other thing debian calls the server
binary) might help too.

Perhaps you should consider upgrading to a distro that packages apache
2.2 and one that does so without turning the configuration in to a
confusing mess.
