Yes, it isn't once you learn about the different toolchains that most 
binary distributions
of Perl have been built with and the fact that both httpd and mod_perl 
like to be built
with Visual Studio. I was (and stil don't consider myself) familiar with 
building software
  on Windows, so I had to learn the hard way.

I've been able to build Perl 5.20.1 with VC11 and on mod_perl before I 
saw your message.
Your notes are very welcome, maybe I can improve the process a bit for 
this setup.

With 5.20.1 I had (as per Readme.Win32) to edit the Makefile so it knew to
- build 32-bit binaries on my 64-bit box (XAMPP's httpd is a x86 build)
- and that I was using VC11 Express.

I didn't wait all the tests, but the result was a (AFAIK) working mod_perl.
Thanks a lot for your help folks!

And if you want to consider that as feedback:
Yes, for $ME mod_perl seems to be loadable - even working with the httpd 
2.4.10 build in XAMPP 1.8.3-5
At one condition: Compile Perl yourself with (I'd guess) the same Visual 
Studio version as was used to
build httpd and don't use the included StrawberryPerl.

Best regards
