Appending /usr/sbin to the search path seems reasonable, I've pushed it
to master (rev 83b39016614370843a98b1b85d4fe5517e4bb7c6, [1]). For the
release version you can just pass an extended path to ./configure:

  PATH="$PATH:/usr/sbin" ./configure"

AC_PATH_PROGS stores the absolute path, so there's no need to change the
PATH for the rest of the build.

That is strange. Aside from checking logs (startup messages now go to
the individual test log, e.g. test/test-00_basic.bash.log, access and
error logs to test/logs/ as before), two things come to mind:

* Are test TEST_HOST and TEST_IP correct for your system? Debian's
default /etc/hosts file configures "localhost" as IPv4 only, so I have
to pass either TEST_HOST="ip6-localhost" or TEST_IP="" to
./configure, otherwise host name and IP don't match.

* If you want to start the Apache process manually (e.g. with a
Debugger), run "make show-test-env" in the test/ directory, which will
dump the content of AM_TESTS_ENVIRONMENT to stdout, so you can easily
provide the same environment as the test suite.
