I tried building mod_perl again with current CVS, just to make sure, and
it was still broken.  Then I tried Apache, and it was broken now too!

Then I figured out what was going on.

Last time I tried this, I build Apache, then tried to build mod_perl. 
Before I did that, I had to install LWP.  LWP put a file called 'HEAD'
in /usr/bin/ , which blew away the file called 'head' (dang
case-insensitive filesystem...).  Apache uses 'head' during its
configuration process, so the build failed.

The upshot: current mod_perl CVS sources now build fine for me, and a
persistent riddle that poked its head up in various circumstances is now
