+1 from me, using VS2019 (v16.9.4) x64 on Windows 10, Perl 5.34.0, Apache
httpd 2.4.51, mod_perl from SVN (r1894283), libapreq2-2.16, with and
without LWP installed.

(For me the build works just doing "perl Makefile.PL && nmake &&
nmake test" after setting my perl.exe and httpd.exe folders in the %PATH%.)

Still looking for more +1s...
