That is a sticky problem, and I only got it to work by patching the
generated Makefiles by hand. As I see it, Apache::src would not help
here, the mod_perl install procedure needs to install the mod_perl.exp
file at the same location as the httpd.exp file is found, namely in the
Apache directory libexec. I did already submit a patch to mod_perl in
last August (that was not applied for some reason), that does reference
the httpd.exp file at its standard location. What about installing the
mod_perl.exp there and simply reference that from the libapreq Makefile
if AIX is the platform?
