As far as I'm aware apache2ctl -S *does* tell you that, as once
you've worked out (from DNS) what IP address the hostname resolves
to, -S shows you which vhosts are available on that IP:port.

Can't you just see what www.foo.com resolves to in DNS and then look
down the list of IP:port that apache2ctl -S spits out until you find
that one, then see what the configured vhosts are? It'll either be a
matching one or the default one or the first one for that IP:port.
