So, just to confirm, the problem you were having earlier
about Apache not starting up with mp2 is solved when you
manually copy the manifest file for into the
Apache2\modules directory? That's great that, I assume,
the patched ExtUtils::MakeMaker handles correctly all
the Apache2::*, etc. modules wrt the manifest files; we
just have to concentrate on - I'll take a
look at it this weekend.
