no, the mp2 MakeMaker tools serve many purposes, and installing into Apache2
is just one of them.  another is, for instance, letting XS modules know
where the mod_perl header files and typemaps are, or (IIRC) adding things
that, say, win32 needs to know about.

so no, they stay.  but now pure perl modules won't need them.
