Talking of bloated binaries, if you can live with 2mb apache binaries,
give mod_perl_fast a whirl.

Actually, that's not quite fair most people won't get 2mb binaries, but
it's sure easy to achieve.

I think I might have the mother of all bloated binaries. Mine start at
2.2Mb and proceeed to anything up to 20Mb thanks to mod_perl_fast. With
a 20 request lifespan, they don't get a chance to eat all the memory.

If you have lots of perl, mod_perl_fast is for you. Apache 1.1.1 and 1.2
friendly and it comes with a free tarfile case for portability. Call now!.
