That's right - the current cvs Apache-Test picks up the system's fine. Maybe this is too much hand-holding, but the
patch I had also makes some typical guesses about what
$ENV{APACHE} could be set to, and sets it if it finds a 1.3
version, or otherwise prompts the user for it (Win32 users
typically may not be familiar with environment variables, even
the PATH, judging by a lot of messages I get). Without this, if
one doesn't set $ENV{APACHE} on Win32, a 2.0 Apache is used, if
found. Would this be OK to leave in? Having to pick up a 1.3
Apache on Win32 without $ENV{APACHE} set is such a special case
that it's probably not worth working into Apache-Test, and yet
libapreq is a really important package, so this special treatment
might be justified in this case ...
