It's as good a place as any, although the mod-perl user list might
be a slightly better choice.

I run RH 8 (with all updates, but I never use their apache rpm's), so 
hopefully I should be able to help...

If you downloaded libapreq from CPAN as "root", there's a very good
chance that libapreq is sitting in a directory for which only root
has access.  The Apache::Test suite we use now does not work in this 

Try downloading, building, and testing libapreq as a non-root
user, and see if you still see problems with the tests.
