Yeah, but it's not. Particularly mod_perl, which is, if you believe
the reports, installed on a majority (ie >50%) of Apache servers.

For a mod_perl install, you go into the mod_perl directory, and type:

perl Makefile.PL DO_HTTPD=1 EVERYTHING=1
make test
make install

That's it. Really, that's all.
If you want a more complex Apache install, you ./configure in the
Apache directory first.

Perhaps there's a certain bravado to be gained by making it seem
harder, but I'm not seeing it.

Likewise with SSL, from what I've experienced, although there are
better reasons for making that seem harder than it really is.
