Thanks for testing, and apologies for not getting back to you sooner.

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about building Apache/mod_perl on *nix
systems, and was hoping that someone else might step in with some answers

Do you get the same behaviour with Apache-Test-1.42, or are these new
problems in 1.43-rc1?

If the problems are not new then I'm inclined to leave them for now
(assuming I can get some +1s from voters on releasing this) and look at
addressing them for the next release. The purpose of this release was
really just to update Apache-Test in mod_perl to the current version before
making a long-overdue release of that.
