Ops, sorry, Dean. I've missed this message. But I cannot give you an example
not related to mod_perl :-( But with mod_perl you can try it the following way
to reproduce the problem:

 $ cvs co modperl
 $ cvs co apache-1.3
 $ cd modperl
 $ perl Makefile.PL \
        APACHE_PREFIX=/tmp/modperl-apache \
        APACHE_SRC=../apache-1.3/src \
        DO_HTTPD=1 USE_APACI=1 \
 $ make
 $ make install

Then insert into /tmp/modperl-apache/etc/httpd.conf:

  <Location /perl-status>
  SetHandler  perl-script
  PerlHandler Apache::Status

Then request http://localhost/perl-status.  When you leave out the USE_DSO=1
all goes fine, i.e. when mod_perl is compiled statically into httpd all is
fine. But when it is built as a DSO it fails because the "perl-script" handler
is not found. Crazy.
