I'm not sure if this will get you any further,
but you might try building this just from the
command line, as described in INSTALL.win32:
    perl Maekfile.PL APACHE_SRC=C:\Path\to\Apache

However, if you're new to Apache and mod_perl, and
there's no other considerations, it's probably
better to start with Apache/2 and mod_perl-2, which
especially on Win32, offer significant improvements
over Apache/1 and mod_perl-1. Again, if you're
just starting out, it may be easier initially
to install a pre-compiled ppm binary package for
mod_perl; how to do this is described at
