I don't think this will be robust enough, since vendors tend to do things in 
their own subtle ways. It's probably much better to explicitly search @INC, 
rather than relying on INSTALLVENDORARCH.

p.s. the Apache/ is quite big but should be ok if it's never be 
modified, which I hope is the case...
