Only by working out necessary changes to test suite to allow it to be
done if not installed.

Alternatively, install a version of httpd in temporary directory and
install mod_python in that. You don't need to run up that Apache, as
test suite scripts will just use it for its tests directly. When done,
blow away that Apache.

As above, yes that should work.
