No, my global httpd.conf doesn't have an active LockFile directive
(there is one in there, but it's commented out by default).  I think the
issue is that my server is compiled to store logs in var/log/*_log,
rather than 'logs/*'.  The path to logs during the test is overridden to
be 'logs/', relative to the 't' directory, but LockFile (and maybe other
directives that would write into the log directory) attempts to create
the lock as 'var/log/accept.lock'.  Obviously this cannot succeed, as
there is no 'var' directory in there.

I've added this into TestConfig.pm, and am testing right now...

<IfModule !mpm_winnt.c> 
<IfModule !mpm_netware.c>
    Lockfile @t_logs@/accept.lock
</IfModule>
</IfModule>
