Hmm, why in the world would you use --show-layout to configure Apache? It does 
just that, shows the layout of what's going to be configured, it doesn't 
configure. See for yourself:

apache-1.3> ./configure --show-layout
apache-1.3> make
===> src
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/stas/'
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/stas/'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `all'.  Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/stas/'
make[1]: *** [build-std] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/stas/'
make: *** [build] Error 2

it is not a bug in mod_perl.
