mod_perl-2 should be getting the ap[ru] config script's 
name/location from httpd (ie apxs).  Like apreq, modperl's 
apr ABI is subordinate to httpd, so asking apxs for the name
of the ap[ru] script it used is IMO the safest solution.

Not strange at all when you consider parallel installs of past 0.9.x and 
future 1.x.y.
