Maybe it is faster, maybe it isn't.  Either way, it is very unlikely 
that you would run up against this difference as a bottleneck in your

That could be - if you could post those faults and also your 
program we may be able to help.

Building mod_perl as a static module was the defacto standard with 
mod_perl1, just as building as a dynamic module is defacto with 
mod_perl2.  I would not try to get caught up in the differences though 
and suggest that you try to get a working build as a dynamically loaded 
module.  If you encounter problems there, they will definitely be of 
interest to the rest of us who build mod_perl as a shared object.
