Wow, I'm impressed! Yes, that does fix the problem. I've
placed an Embperl ppm package up at
for ActivePerl 8xx, based on 2.2.0; this doesn't have
mod_perl-1 support built in, as I'm having (local)
difficulties with this, but it does include libxml2
support (a post-install script should offer to download
the relevant external dlls for you).
