Well, here is my two bits:

+    Apache::TestConfig::autoconfig_skip_module_add('Embperl.c');
 }
 
 sub configure_modperl {

As you can see, I took the _easy_ way out. I could not figure out
how to force mod_perl to be loaded first, so I just forced Apache::Test
to skip loading Embperl.

Why this aproach is bad:

1) it's a q&d.
2) only addresses Embperl
3) posted by a notorious blow-hard wise-a**

Why this appreach is good:

1) it works
2) it's easy and simple
3) while only addressing Embperl, are there any others to worry about?
4) precludes addressing side effects, if any, of loading mod_perl first.

Aloha => Beau;
