Here's a little update. I've managed to sort it out, it seemed that 
the '--sbindir' directive was set to 'bin' for some reason, where I 
(obviously?) expected it to be /usr/sbin, primarily because the 
default path to the suexec bin is /usr/sbin/suexec, according to the 
documentation at 


Anyway, things are running smoothly again and you may ignore my previous post.

Bye, Ro
