Yes.  But how did you skip api.t?  I meant edit 
t/response/TestPerl/ so that some condition is not met in the test 
plan so that the chunk of code above gets run.  The test plan is 
expressed as:

    plan $r, tests => 2,
        need { "getppid() is not implemented on Win32"
                   => !Apache::Build::WIN32(),
               "getppid() is having problems with perl 5.6"
                   => !($] < 5.008),

so change this to make it skip for you.  (As opposed to just creating a 
t/SKIP file, which wouldn't involve the "exit" code above.)
