Looks like you've been hooked =).  Normally links
statically against libapreq.a (the perl build of libapreq
doesn't generate a shared library). Your version of gcc might
not like our choice of linker flags in Request/Makefile.PL,
or it might not be locating src/libapreq.a- it's hard for me 
to tell from just this error message.

Try doing the build this way

  % ./configure --with-apache-includes=DIR && make && make install
  % perl Makefile.PL
  % make && make test

DIR needs to be the path to your apache includes directory,
usually it's /usr/local/apache/include.  The first line will
install into /usr/local/lib and the
header files will go to /usr/local/include.  Should this 
process still fail, you might need to manually remove those 
installed header & library files.
