Oh, I'd assumed these "[crit]" errors meant Apache hadn't even started up.

Well, THAT worked. I just put a "#" in front of the line "LoadModule 
dbd_module modules/", and the errors are gone. Most 
excellent. (I'd thought that mod_dbd might be intertwined with the 
abundance of other modules, but nope!)

I'll second that. Cryptic error messages emitted by code that 
shouldn't even be executing.

Well, I am using mySQL, but in the PHP-based MantisBT, so (I think) 
Apache won't be involved.

Thanks for the help,
