Isn't /var/www what the Apache server uses as its default DocumentRoot?

I would certainly not recommend that path or any of its subdirectories 
as an RT installation root - if only to make absolutely sure that you 
don't expose your configuration that way when somebody manages to access 
the default VHost.

Instead, I'd move the installation to /opt - i.e. use --prefix=/opt/rt4 
or somesuch when running configure.

Then make a separate Apache vHost with

   DocumentRoot "/opt/rt4/share/html"

That way, accesses to the default vHost of Apache will go to the default 
pages in /var/www, and the accesses for the web elements of RT will go 
into a subdirectory of your RT installation.

Just my $0.02
