My final target is actually https and likely using mod_authz_ldap but I am 
doing baby steps. This is an RHEL 6.5 box

git is working - so is git-daemon
gitweb is working
using apache (at least for now, may ultimately switch to nginx but if I get 
it working in Apache, switchover won't be hard)

Trying to configure http and finally got it working by creating a symlink

ln -s /var/git /var/www/html/var

which I needed to do because the errors in apache logs kept pointing to 
/var/www/html/var/git didn't exist - so it does now.

Configuration that is working looks like this but it is clumsy - what am I 
doing wrong?

<Virtualhost *:80>
  ServerName git.stt.local
  ServerAlias git

  SetEnv GIT_PROJECT_ROOT /var/git
  ScriptAlias /git/ /usr/libexec/git-core/git-http-backend/

  Alias /git /var/git

  <Directory "/usr/lib/git-core*">
     Options ExecCGI Indexes
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from all
     Require all granted

  <LocationMatch "^/git/.*/git-receive-pack$">
      AuthType Basic
      AuthName "Git Access"
      AuthUserFile /var/git/.htpasswd
      Require valid-user
