cool, that works. Probably need to have some checkpoint target and run the 
above commands if someone invokes Makefile.PL from glue/perl

So with this top-level Makefile.PL:

require 5.006;

use strict;
use warnings;

use Getopt::Long qw(GetOptions);
use Config;

my $perl = $Config{perlpath}; # XXX

my @opts = qw(with-apache2-apxs with-perl);

my %opts;

# grab from @ARGV only the options that we expect
GetOptions(\%opts, (map "$_=s", @opts));

$opts{"with-perl"} = $perl;

push @ARGV, ('-apxs', $opts{"with-apache2-apxs"})
     if exists $opts{"with-apache2-apxs"};

qx{cd "glue/perl" && $perl Makefile.PL @ARGV};

The run-time is getting closer to the CPAN style:

perl Makefile.PL --with-apache2-apxs=/home/stas/httpd/prefork/bin/apxs
make test
make perl_glue
make perl_test
make install
make perl_install

Notice that it picks the right perl based on the perl used to run Makefile.PL, 
so --with-perl is not really needed. So we need to do some more work with 
configure so it'll insert the perl_glue target into the make target, perl_test 
into test and perl_install into install. Once this is done, it'll become:

perl Makefile.PL --with-apache2-apxs=/home/stas/httpd/prefork/bin/apxs
make test
make install

Also should probabaly replace's configure style --with-apache2-apxs= and use 
-apxs like all other packages using Apache::Test do. Of course Makefile.PL 
will feed it to configure using --with-apache2-apxs=
