yeah i went that way installing it all on my mac. i typically find
i end up needing the source for reference if nothing else at one
point or another.

yeah, that was worth a couple hours of head-scratching.

what exactly is required from mod_perl in the preflight config
stage? does it basically just `use' every preloaded module in the
conf to see if it can?

ok, no worries.

a bit of one. i'm basically doing a kind of a reimplementation of
mod_negotiation, mod_dir and mod_mime (plus a couple other things)
to work on svn repositories. those modules interface directly with
the filesystem, so i need to provide a different method for emulating
various features of the filesystem. i wanted to do them up in
mod_perl with SVN::Core.

yeah, that's what i'm going to be working on. just basically BEGIN
{ apr_initialize() } END { apr_terminate() }, in xs. i bet it'll
do the same thing.
