Most of it will work unchanged, but there a few little tweaks you might have
to do, depending on how the application is written.

The changes you might have to do, are small, so also somebody with little
knowlegde of Perl should be able to do so.

In case this is an option for you, we can also make these changes for you as
consulting work.

Apache::src gives informations about the build flags from mod_perl 1. In
mod_perl these informations are taken from Apache2::BuildConfig. An object
of Apache2::BuildConfig should normaly exist in $mp2cfg, so Apache::src is
not used for mod_perl 2.

Both modules are used to determinate the ldflags and other build flags.

Note: Embperl 1.3.x does not work with Apache 2 at all, you need to use
Embperl 2
