Thanks, John, for hints!

That allowed me to find this page:

And I got content returned with these settings (and had to run as root 

CGIT_CONFIG=/etc/cgitrc \
QUERY_STRING="url=JTM/plain/doc/presentations/01_About.odp" \
/usr/lib/cgit/cgit.cgi 1>cgit.odt 2>cgit.log

cgit.log is empty and
cgit.odt is 713K file which starts with content:

X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff
Content-Security-Policy: default-src 'none'
Content-Type: application/octet-stream
Content-Length: 729281
Content-Disposition: inline; filename="01_About.odp"

So, it may be problem with apache. I have quite many of modules loaded 
for reverse proxy and and url and html link rewrites to shorten URL 
coming from XWiki content management system.

apachectl -M

  rewrite_module (shared)
  setenvif_module (shared)
  socache_shmcb_module (shared)
  ssl_module (shared)
  status_module (shared)
  xml2enc_module (shared)

Question is how I can debug it, knowing that this is production site and 
that I don't have much of experience debugging apache?
