Won't that intervene with the non-perl build, for users which aren't 
interested in the perl glue. I suppose that if they don't run 'perl 
Makefile.PL' it makes no difference to them.

  So if we say:

   FIRST_MAKEFILE => Makefile.mod_perl

the top-level Makefile could include:

dist :
     make -f Makefile.mod_perl dist

but it's probably too messy to have two Makefiles. Is there a way we can 
generate Makefile normally via MakeMaker and then somehow integrate the 
autoconf's stuff in? Or the other way around?
