Many thanks for looking at this, Randy, and my apologies for taking an 
age to try out your fixes.  Unfortunately, I don't get much time to work 
on this stuff any more :-(

I've just checked out revision 407743 and tried it with Apache-2.2.2 and 
Perl-5.8.8 and it does indeed now build without any problems at all.

I also get some test failures, but no trouble with 
t\filter\in_str_declined_read which you mentioned in another mail a 
while ago was causing problems for you:

(The ModPerl-Registry tests all run OK when I cd into ModPerl-Registry/ 
and run "nmake test".)
