Figured as much. Can you move the scripts around into Bugs
($gWebHostBugDir)? Or change the docs (see below)

It's up to you to set up the httpd.  The basics: web files are located into 
/var/lib/debbugs/www and the CGI scripts are in /var/lib/debbugs/www/cgi.
Point your server's configuration to these places.

+ inserting the respective values you configure for debbugs.

Or something to that affect.

Something new to learn every day. Haven't created a user yet in
