But it that's the case, I wouldn't expect this to work...and it does:

$ perl -MAxKit -e 'printAxKit->VERSION;'
$ 1.62

or even:

$ perl -e 'use AxKit;'
$ perl -e 'require AxKit;'

This also happens outside of the confines of Apache, and are quite happy.

Correct. need('AxKit') and the tests it's in work just fine on FreeBSD
and XP and the tests run. Both of those also have
Apache1/MP1/Apacher2/MP2 installed.

I could swear that I even saw it run once on my Ubuntu install.
I may start uninstalling anything Apache/Apache2/MP1/MP2 related and
start from scratch and see if there's a collision somewhere.

Good point. Time for more tinkering!

On an unrelated note, I haven't heard anyting about my post on 2.0.2
test failures yet.
