Not so well for me on Mac OS X. There are a couple of issues.

1. It seemed to get confused about the presence of Apache::Test. I have 
the old Apache::test installed on my system, and might even have some 
old version of Apache::Test. So I got this error:

Can't locate Apache/ in @INC (@INC contains: Apache-Test/lib 
/usr/local/bricolage/lib /Users/david/dev/perl/myco/classes 
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0/darwin /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0 
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl .) 
at Makefile.PL line 16.

When I ran CPANP and told it to install Apache::Test, it too thought I 
was up to date. then I told it to install Apache::TestMM, and then it 
did the right thing. So it might make more sense to have the test in 
Makefile.PL test for TestMM, instead:

use constant HAS_APACHE_TEST => eval {require Apache::TestMM};

Once I had Apache::TestMM properly installed, I was able to run "perl 
Makefile.PL" and make, and all went well. But then for "make test", I 
got this error:

/usr/local/bin/perl -Iblib/arch -Iblib/lib \
t/TEST -clean
Can't open perl script "t/TEST": No such file or directory
make: *** [test_clean] Error 2

I'm not sure why this is, but it looks like since 
Apache::test->get_test_params() is commented out, it would never know 
where to find the binary. Um, but on the other hand, running perl 
Makefile.PL again, I see this warning:

skipping test setup...Undefined subroutine &Apache::Test::config called 
at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Apache/ line 90.

Since config() is clearly defined in Apache::Test, I'm not sure what 
the problem there is.

Anyway, I ran make install and that went fine, and then, firing up 
Bricolage, it seems to work fine. So I expect that there are just some 
configuration tweaks that need to be made, or maybe it's just some 
funkyness on my box.

Anyway, here's a patch for INSTALL.MacOSX that adds in the requirement 
for Apache::TestMM.
