since it's just a C module and you don't need mod_perl you should change
that Apache::TestRunPerl to just Apache::TestRun.  that should make A-T use
the inherited mod_perl from httpd.conf instead of hunting around for it.

you should check out the code from the tutorial I gave at ApacheCon.  the
code is here

and the tutorial slides are here

pay particular attention to mod_example_ipc-install in the code tarball.
basically, put your C module in c-modules following the pattern you'll see
there (filenames and directory names and declarations are important).  then
let Perl manage t/TEST and the Makefile for you using makefile.

hmm, that's odd.

I would start with copying the workflow I outline in the tarball I mentioned
above.  it's a bit different than what you're doing now, so it may feel
strange, but give it a whirl and see if it works.  then you can decide if
you like it or not :)
