I've just committed some changes to do all those things:
- use --disable-perl-glue, rather than --without-perl
- allow Apache/2.\d
- use the (apr|apu)-config utilties to get the names
of the libraries, both for the C side of things and the
Perl glue. This required some changes in the
(apr|apu)-config scripts, to record the library names - you
can get the newer version of these by deleting
and rerunning 'perl Makefile.PL' in httpd-apreq-2.

All of these changes were Win32-specific, except the
last one, which affected - I used
File::Basename, and also got rid of an extra variable
that on Unix was redundant and is now no longer needed
on Win32.

best regards,
