I had started going down the road of compiling from source. More 
interesting things popped up. ExtUtils reports that mod_perl2 -- 
1.999022 is installed. mod_perl2?

There are also three mod_perls under my lib dir:


This can't be good!

When I tried to do `perl Makefile.PL MP_APXS=/path/to/apxs it 

mod_perl/1.99_16 installation detected... not ok

Cannot install mod_perl/2.0.3 on top of mod_perl/1.99_16
due to a major API change between mod_perl 1.999_21 and 1.999_22.

Conflicting file: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-
Conflicting dir: /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-

I should upgrade, or rather remove both Apache and all traces of 
mod_perl and start again. My problem is that I do have a few handlers 
that work and are used a bit throughout the day. There will no doubt 
be some modify to do to these to get them up again.
