Can you tell me the module which was modified? I cannot compile under
Windows.

That's good to know.

This would seem to be helpful though I'm not sure it's a top priority.
The frustrating thing for me was that the following command was not
resetting the apache_test_config.pm settings (little did I realize at
the time though that this was where the old path was being cached):

  `perl Makefile.pl -httpd /path/to/httpd`

Not being able to clean up the environment via a `make clean` was
perhaps the reason that apache_test_config.pm was not able to be
rebuilt.


Thanks,
William
