No way -- httpd.h is an internal configuration file which is specific
to a particular server source tree (remember, there may be more than one
on a machine).  It doesn't belong outside the apache tree.  Why don't
they just setup a modules/mod_perl/* directory and then refer to it
as ../../httpd.h (or, better, just as httpd.h and let make set up
the -I options).
