Thanks for testing it, Randy.

Unfortunately, this patch doesn't solve the identical problem with "make
test". Apache::TestMM is generating the t/TEST scripts incorrectly.
Apache::TestMM wraps ExtUtils::MakeMaker, so you'd think it would get it
right, but it also inherits some functionality from Apache::Build. And
Apache::Build overrides ExtUtils::MakeMaker's value of $(PERL) with it's own
value obtained from my old nemesis, $Config{perlpath}. From the code, it
would appear that Apache::Build is doing it intentionally, but the reasoning
eludes me. And it's not clear if the problem should be fixed in Apache::Build
or just in Apache::Test. Perhaps I should continue this aspect of the
discussion to

Or I could just break down and ask my system administrator to change to have the correct value for $Config{perlpath}... Nah, that would
be too easy! :-)
