The doc says that MP_USE_DSO is enabled by default. Do you mean if it 
wasn't explicitly passed as MP_USE_DSO=1?

that's cool!

Does any platform can build DSO?

I'm working on the introduction to 2.0 chapter for our book and must 
freeze the modifications very soon now. So if is there anything missing 
or incorrect in install.pod, any chance that you can add it? or tell me 
what and I'll do that. e.g. currently there are only details on how to 
build DSO mod_perl, and the above shades some light on the STATIC build
