No, I think that's a different PREFIX altogether, the one
that mod_perl and/or Apache-Test will get installed to.

The problem here is that Apache-Test is trying to find a ServerRoot for
resolving relative file names and is using the Apache2 PREFIX for that.
I don't think that can currently be overridden at the Apache-Test
configuration stage.
