But the document says you must INSTALL the C libs first, which
I no longer believe is true once the patch is applied.  So is
all the stuff in INSTALL.MacOSX which is related to that 
(, ./configure, etc.) still actually necessary?  

If you're not sure how to address my question, the simplest
way to find out is by removing the installed shared libs for
libapreq in /usr/local), and see if you can do the normal perl
build/test/install (i.e. same as you would on RH-9).  If that
doesn't work, then we probably need to keep INSTALL.MacOSX;
but if it does work, I think we can throw that file away now.

Anyways, I'll defer the decision to you, since between the two
of us you're the one with actual OS/X experience.  I'm just 
playing blind guessing games :-).
