As you posted in the followup, this is a problem with all Apache:: modules. 
The problem originates within Apache, not us.

FWIW, the cvs version of Apache::Test warns you early whether this is going to 
work or not, rather than just failing during 'make test'.

Ideas how to solve this are *very* welcome.

As of this moment per your observation you need to either put the data in the 
directory readable by the apache user, or build/run the tests as a non-root.

If you configure your CPAN to put the build dir not under /root, but let's say 
/tmp/ (probably can come up with a better choice), it'll work.
