Hi,
    From your earlier patches, it occurred to me that if we're
going to go to this mod_perl.so convention, how about renaming
all things that reference ApacheModulePerl, for consistency?
For example, the attached tar.gz file, which unpacks into
    src/modules/win32/mod_perl.mak
    src/modules/win32/mod_perl.def
    src/modules/win32/mod_perl.dsp
could replace the current
    src/modules/ApacheModulePerl/ApacheModulePerl.mak
    src/modules/ApacheModulePerl/ApacheModulePerl.def
    src/modules/ApacheModulePerl/ApacheModulePerl.dsp
In these I incorporated your earlier patches to the .dsp
and .mak files to build a mod_perl.so.

This would mean some other changes; these are
in the attached win32.diff file. To summarize,
- Makefile.PL: use the src/modules/win32/* structure, as
well as incorporating your patch to find the Apache lib
in the new location for 1.3.15. This also will, according
to the apache version, install mod_perl.so as mod_perl.so
or as ApacheModulePerl.dll, if INSTALL_DLL is passed
to Makefile.PL.  Finally, a message is printed out at the
end mentioning the new convention.
- INSTALL.win32: mention the new convention, as well
as change references from ApacheModulePerl.dll to
mod_perl.so.
- MANIFEST: changes the dsp file name
- t/* files: makes some changes to load mod_perl.so,
rather than ApacheModulePerl.dll.

I tried this out on both apache_1.3.15 and apache_1.3.12,
and it worked, but if you have a chance to try it ....

best regards,
randy
