One suggestion was to recompile Apache and outside mods (I'd already done so, 
with no luck, and should have noted that in my message). Others suggested
checking LD_LIBRARY_PATH and using ldd to check to see was was linked to by
the httpd executable.  This, too, looked ok.

Greg suggested disabling mod_perl, and this did the trick.  I'm not sure if
any of our webfolks use it, and will have to deal with this issue if they do,
but, at least, we are back in business today.

(Interestingly, this fix did *not* make Sun's distributed apache work.)
