It shows the library path prepended to the list, so thats ok. One thing 
that bothers me is that it only works with ' ' surrounding it either in 
the or the PerlSwitches directive. Note that both myself and 
the documentation only use one or the other and not both at the same time.

(@INC contains: '/usr/local/www/<VHOST>/lib'

I didn't think so either; except maybe the Apache::Reload (which I'd 
like to get working as well so I don't have to restart the server every 
time I change the code - especially during dev).

Again as I thought. But if I may ask (for later configuration), how is 
access controlled? Using auth or access in the perl module rather than 
server acl's?

That much I had assumed; especially considering I'm only trying to get 
the tutorial working to begin with. Question is what configuration am I 
missing? My thinking was its the @inc.

Actually, I already did. This is all it says:

[notice] Apache/2.2.24 (FreeBSD) mod_ssl/2.2.24 OpenSSL/0.9.8x DAV/2 
PHP/5.4.23 mod_perl/2.0.8 Perl/v5.14.4 configured -- resuming normal 
failed to resolve handler Mod_home::Mod

I've checked all the paths as well, and it all seems well.
