i had a look at the postinst scripts for both dwww and info2www yesterday
after i had the same problem.
The bug is actually a typo. In the apache section of your .postinst
scripts you had "foundhttp=yes" instead of "foundhttpd=yes". I.E. you
missed the final "d".
I edited the postinst scripts with vi and they work fine now.
BTW, I'm using them with apache 1.1.1 with no problems.
