   It seems to work ... (!) On Win98 and using ActiveState's latest
build (616) with the latest cvs mod_perl-1.24 source, VC++ 6,
and a fresh apache_1.3.12, the compilation went without
warnings, and the server started fine (I applied the patches
just as given). I'm not sure about the mod_perl tests, as 
there's some issues with Win98 and this build that I'm not 
sure about (independent of mod_perl), but some Apache::Registry 
scripts worked fine, and a simple Apache::Hello handler also worked.
I'll test it further, but I thought I'd make it available
first - in,
there's mod_perl.ppd, mod_perl.tar.gz, ApacheModulePerl.dll,
httpd.conf-perl, and install.txt. Supposedly the mod_perl 
stuff can be installed within ppm as
although if that doesn't work, if you grab the .ppd and .tar.gz
files, put them in the same directory, and type
   ppm install mod_perl.ppd
that should work. If I didn't made up the ppd file right,
the install.txt file is a dialogue of 'nmake install' on
my system (I put Perl in C:\Perl) to check. Finally, the
ApacheModulePerl.dll file should be placed in C:\Apache\modules. 
httpd.conf-perl is a simple apache .conf for some mod_perl stuff.
  As I said, I haven't tested this out a lot yet, but perhaps
if there's no obvious and immediate problems, we could mention
it on the list, to get wider testing.

best regards,
