(I meant to be referring to http://perl.apache.org/dist/win32-bin/ in
the above.) Is anyone with access to that site willing to move the old
5.8 binaries into an archive folder and put the new apxs_win32-0.7 in
place? I would do it myself but I'm not aware of having acces to the
machine so I will have to leave it up to other devs...
