__DIE__ is a mess to use and DESTROY cannot be easily used unless 
Apache::TestConfig is subclassed. I think the following is quite clean 
solution. I've tested it with breaking the configure by requiring all 
.pm files (if you remember the breakage I had while developing 

So it works when you run ./t/TEST, but when you run 'make test', for 
some reason Makefile doesn't abort on exit from test_clean target, no 
matter if I put exit -1, 0 or 1, and proceeds with run_tests target. 
Does that have anything to do with the installed __DIE__ sighandler?

I suggest to review the code and get rid of the __DIE__ sighandler all 
together and instead wrap the relevant pieces of code in eval block. Are 
there any exception handling modules bundled in the core?

In any case I think this patch can be committed without relation to the 
__DIE__ issue.
