Bug#339323: apache2-common: /etc/init.d/apache2 throws away error information [patch]
/etc/init.d/apache2 runs "apachectl -t" to catch any errors (good!),
however it then assumes it's confused and checks pids etc.
This patch makes it print the output of apachectl -t (which in my case
told me I had the path wrong of an SSL certificate).
It also skips the pids warning unless it finds a culprit.
