Hi Martin

> Which init script do you mean?

Well, your problem was solved, so there's no need to look at it ;-),
but for completeness: in the Apache config, you'll usually set the
WebshConfig directive to point to a config file, where you provide
your own version of web::interpmap. Obviously you can create infinite
loops there, which would result in some similar error, I guess. You
don't necessarily have to provide this config file, as there is a
built-in default, but as said: usually, you tweak your setup in

You can try running make providing the binary on the command line:

  make apachetest HTTPD_BIN=/path/to/your/httpd

configure and Makefile try some magic to find the http binary make
needs to run for the tests. Obviously, it's not magical enough for
your environment. If you can provide any change for the configure
script or Makefile so that the tests would work out-of-the-box, I'd
happily try to work them in...
