I appreciate the feedback Joachim.  I am working on this problem now,
trying to get Apache2::Controller to test in Debian.

Can you provide more details about your workaround?  I tried `cpan2deb
Apache2::Controller` as root on a pristine stretch installation, but
it did not run the Apache::Test suite:

===============================

As you can see, we ran into the same errors here that the original
message thread poster noted:

apache2: Could not open configuration file /etc/apache2/httpd.conf: No
such file or directory
[  error] Apache cannot spawn child processes as root, therefore the
test suite must be run as a non-privileged user.

If you were able to get the Apache::Test suite to run in any library
that uses mod_perl2 and Apache::Test, can you please share the details
of what you did?

Incidentally, this seems like a broader problem in the vendor, both
Debian and Ubuntu.  If their system is building packages from source
packages as root, any packaged CPAN library that uses Apache::Test is
not actually being tested in the build stage, even though it looks
like it works because the process completes successfully.  It should
really bail there at the [error] stage and say "I can't do this."

Thanks.

Mark
