And the error page itself says:

     The database environment variables are not correctly set in the
     included .htaccess file.  Please read through the comments included
     in the file and set up the db_* environment variables correctly.

     Some possible solutions are to make sure that mod_env is enabled
     in httpd.conf, as well as having followed the instructions in the
     README about the AllowOverride settings.

Not sure how to be more explicit than this.  This has been in the code 
since 11/07, so perhaps Mlists needs to upgrade his checkout.
