Thanks. Output attached. I put this in a BEGIN block in the Bricolage  
loading and configuration module:

     print STDERR '@' x 78;
     print STDERR "Running Bric::App:ApacheConfig\n";
     print STDERR '@' x 78;

And stuck this at the end of it:

print STDERR '@' x 78;
print STDERR "Done running Bric::App:ApacheConfig\n";
print STDERR '@' x 78;

It sure seems to be loading a shitload more Perl modules; they all  
load with static mod_perl, too, though, and that's good and fast.  
There are also a ton of calls to munmap(). Other than obvious  
flushing, I don't see it getting hung up on any one thing. :-(
