Indeed, recompiling perl with -fPIC fixed the issue.  The rest of the
(TONNES of) modules I had installed seem to work yet, too.  Which is good.
You have any idea how many modules MojoMojo alone uses?  :)

The instructions about -fPIC really need to be more clear.  I thought it
was saying recompile mod_perl2 with that option, not perl itself.  Glad
someone knew!

Thank you for the quick and accurate help!!!
