Try passing the actual directory in which the modules are located
into the import_module() function. Ie.,

  xx =  apache.import_module("x",path=[directory])

where "directory" is substituted with the actual path. By passing it
explicitly, you avoid the whole PythonPath problem as it will look
specifically in the specified directory.
