Bug#652331: libapache2-mod-perl2: FTBFS with apache2-mpm-event: tests hang
When building libapache2-mod-perl2 with apache2-mpm-event instead of
apache2-mpm-worker, the test suite hangs. The test order is randomized
and the hanging test name isn't printed out when it hangs, but looking
at the process list reveals at least these (from different attempts):
Given this paragraph in the apache2-mpm-event description:
This MPM is experimental and less tested than the worker and prefork MPMs.
I think that just a Build-Conflicts declaration would be an appropriate
fix for this problem on the libapache2-mod-perl2 side.
Ideally the issues should of course be investigated properly and fixed
in the MPM code where applicable, but I'm not going to work on that.
