Two things in /etc/httpd.conf

1. A Directory option is required to honor Includes.  added a Directory
   section for the actual document root.  (There was its parent, stripped
   to darn near nada; one child with auth restrictions; and the lists site,
   but nothing for itself.)

2. (bang head on wall, discover pillow already there) uhhhh... it helps if
   the includes_module is loaded.  It was commented out.

Cleanup continues...
