To test this I have removed the tagging but got problems elsewhere because we 
use defines to activate stuff in our config. So for example *if* mod_env is 
installed we pass -DHAVE_ENV when starting apache. I think the easiest thing 
for me to do is to make a wrapper that feeds A-T with what it wants.

Does the A-T stuff has to be installed? Is it required during mod_perl runtime 
in any way?
