Sending again from hotmail just to make sure it gets through.

Thank you for your help.  I took your advice and went back to the virtual.d
configuration files.  Repeated testing uncovered a surprising dns error that
was redirecting traffic to an identically configured virtual host using a
different IP address.  Thus the changes I was making to the one were not being
picked up as the other IP was being returned for the url I was using.

In any case, I have resolved this and numerous other small issues such that
the httpd-2.4 service is responding as documented and as I require.  The
original question respecting the httpd.conf stanza:

<Directory />
   AllowOverride none
   Require all denied

is resolved, that directive is enabled, and all the web site are now
responding as expected.
