Build Identifier: 

Ran checksetup.pl as root, as instructed.

After confirming all the required Perl modules are present received the following output:

Checking user setup ...
no such group: apache at ./checksetup.pl line 808.

By default Mac OS X does not appear to have the built in Apache webserver running as group 'apache', 
rather as 'www' - on my install checked groups params in '/Applications/Utilities/NetInfo Manager.app'

checksetup.pl can successfully be run by over-riding the perl var $my_webservergroup (ln 798 
checksetup.pl) manually to be 'www', and a (superficially) working Bugzilla install is setup.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Mac OS X 10.3.7
2. download and un-tar.gz Bugzilla 2.18 (Using Stuffit Expander v9.0+)
3. Run Terminal.app
4. cd Bugzilla dir
5. sudo su
6. ./checksetup.pl
7. deal with module dependencies
8. ./checksetup.pl again
9. get message
Actual Results:  
Received message:

Checking user setup ...
no such group: apache at ./checksetup.pl line 808.

You need to edit localconfig and change the $webservergroup variable.

It would be helpful if the message received stated such, or perhaps additional instructions were added 
to the OS Specific install page for Mac OS X:
