Just upgraded the apache web server to:

Server version Apache/1.2.5 Ben-SSL/1.13 FrontPage/3.0.3.

Scripts that work fine will the old apache server now
fail with the error:

exec of /home/aande/htdocs/cgi.bin/formp.cgi failed, reason: Permission denied (errno = 13)

This only seems to happen with users running their
cGI scripts, they work fine if run out of a non user
directory as root.  The *.conf files between the two
versions are the same except for the SSL and Frontpage
info.  We are also trying to use suexec.  

Any ideas what may be causing this?

Are you sure the new installed version runs with enough privileges to exec your scripts?
