I've been trying to follow the discussion, but I can't
figure out exactly what problem is being discussed.  If 
you're doing a perl build of libapreq, libapreq gets its
Makefile information from the Apache::src module.  For some 
reason, it seems a few OS vendors fail to install this 
module properly, which is why the normal thing we suggest
users do is just rebuild/install modperl themselves.  That
way they get a working Apache::src, and Apache:::Request
should build ok then.

If you've figured out some better way to handle this,
by all means please continue working on it!  If you
submit a patch, and it works ok on all platforms, it'll 
definitely go into the upcoming release of 1.1.  

Our current build/test system needs lots of work,
and any contribution will make a big difference 
to the current user community.  If you need help 
fixing something, please don't hesitate to ask.
