Apache should really present a warning when the /run/apache2 directory path is missing or inaccessible. Currently, when httpd -D FOREGROUND runs out of the box, Apache silently fails.

Also, the apache package should automatically mkdir -p /run/apache2 as a postinstall step, so that users don't have to manually configure the system so much.
