I just committed the changes.  To run the test suite,
checkout a fresh cvs version of httpd-apreq *and* httpd-test
and do:

  % cd httpd-apreq
  % ln -s /path/to/httpd-test/perl-framework/Apache-Test Apache-Test
  % perl Makefile.PL -apxs /path/to/apache/bin/apxs
  % make && make test

You might need to make Apache::Test in httpd-test/perl-framework
first, but I'm not certain about that.

Still not sure about how to proceed here.  I'd like to
bundle a release candidate for 1.2 and put it on CPAN
ASAP to see what new problems crop up.

Thanks again.
