mod_perl for Apache 2 is still under _heavy_ development.  After a 
proper search of the archives, you might want to address questions 
about it to one of the mailing lists found at

I believe that there is some preliminary documentation set up at

but considering how in-flux the new version of mod_perl is you should 
understand that the documents found there may or may not be actively 
maintained yet.

If you need mod_perl to run on apache (and who doesn't! :), I'd 
recommend not using version 2 (Apache/mod_perl) just yet.  Probably a 
better solution until mod_perl stabilizes might be to use Apache 2 as a 
proxy for your mod_perl 1/Apache 1.3 server.
