SunOS joplin 5.6 Generic_105181-10 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10
using GCC
Although load_module() [in file mod_so.c] is calling 
  ap_log_error(..., APLOG_DEBUG|APLOG_NOERROR, NULL, "loaded module %s", ...) 
the log message never appears in the actual "error_log" file.

This is because load_module() is passing a NULL server_rec * pointer to 
ap_log_error() [in file http_log.c].  ap_log_error() calls log_error_core() which 
does the following:

    if (s == NULL) {
	 * If we are doing stderr logging (startup), don't log messages that are
	 * above the default server log level unless it is a startup/shutdown
	 * notice
	if (((level & APLOG_LEVELMASK) != APLOG_NOTICE) &&

Since DEFAULT_LOGLEVEL is defined [in http_log.h] to be APLOG_WARNING (== 4),
and we're calling log_error_core() with s==NULL and level==APLOG_DEBUG(== 7),
log_error_core() returns immediately without actually logging the message.
Put these lines into httpd.conf (in this order):

LogLevel debug
LoadModule hello_module libexec/mod_hello.so

[where mod_hello.so is the one supplied with the O'Reilly "Writing Apache Modules" book]
