So, if you try to install (using CPAN) Apache::Request after installing 
the mod_perl port, it doesn't work at all. The reason appears to be that 
all the mod_perl bits get installed in site_perl/5.8.0, but what's 
actually running is 5.8.2, so that directory isn't searched.

AFAICS working around this by using PERL5LIB and the like is fraught 
with danger, because it will then include 5.8.0 stuff in preference to 
5.8.2 stuff, which is obviously ungood.

Am I missing something obvious?
