This explanation was in my first email that got eaten by the timeout.
The term 'httpi-xmlqstat' is simply convenience to distinguish between
the normal httpi and the version with the xmlqstat webapp added to it.
The installation name is whatever you've given it during the
configuration process in response to this question:

: Where do you want the resultant script placed? If you're using
: configure to build multiple instances of HTTPi on different ports,
: make sure this changes unless you're darn certain that they'll all
: be configured the same way.
: If you are doing a full install to update the configuration files for
: launchd/inetd/xinetd/stunnel/etc. simultaneously, THE PATH MUST BE
: Install path?

The installation will never copy of any of the xmlqstat in the htdocs
directory *ever*.

As you see from this snippet:

> > # the base location of the xmlqstat distribution
> > my $resourceRoot = "/export/home/mark/xml-qstat";

The xml-qstat bits are fully independent of htdocs.
This actually makes sense since you have 'normal' stuff which is served
from htdocs, and xml-qstat stuff (rendered by the url /xmlqstat/) that
is served from somewhere else.
This second location should correspond to what you replied to this

: xml-qstat customization:
: ------------------------
: Specify where the xml-qstat root is located.
: The 'xmlqstat' directory under this root will be served by HTTPi
: as the resource '/xmlqstat'.
: You can use Perl variables for this option (example:
: $ENV{'HOME'}/xml-qstat).
: As a shortcut, ~/ in first position will be turned into 
: $ENV{'HOME'}/.  which is "$ENV{'HOME'}/".
: xml-qstat resource root:?


The rationale being that you might either have the rest of your htdocs
under some other scm, or you might even wish to use the webserver
*without* any htdocs whatsoever but with xmlqstat bit alone.

Verify that the $resourceRoot is actually pointing to the correct
position in your final server. The simplest method (instead of
re-configuring everything):

    $ grep resourceRoot  /path/to/your/httpi/server

Let me know how you fare.
