 Ticket <URL: >

Just want to get the word out to all interested parties and victims of
this "bug".

I built my recent perls with the option -Drelocateableinc. This option
is only available with upcoming 5.10 and it allows the users to move
their perls around in the filesystem together with their libraries.

But with this option turned on mod_perl-1.30 is unable to start a
server. It spits out the amazing error message:

Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains: ...

I have no idea how wide spread the use of relocateableinc will become
and if this is a relevant bug or not. Just want to let you know that
this needs to be addressed somehow.
