libapache-mod-perl / woody

Recently I switched from potato to woody (modified sources.list and did
a dist-upgrade).  I'd been using the combination of the apache and
libapache-mod-perl packages successfully under potato.

I am by no means an expert, but it looks to me as though
libapache-mod-perl hasn't been updated to woody, specifically that it
wasnt build using perl 5.6.  When I start apache, I get an error when it
loads my mod_perl startup.pl, and the @INC that's displayed contains all
sorts of 5.005 paths, and not, eg /usr/share/perl/5.6.0.

So, my first question is: is this correct; if not, what might I have
done wrong? BTW, I also tried installing apache-perl instead of these
two packages.

Second question: I decided to be brave: I removed libapache-mod-perl and

    apt-get --build source libapache-mod-perl

This seemed to work but it installed stuff under ./debian/tmp rather
than the usual system locations.  I then moved mod_perl.so to
...apache/1.3/ and did a make perl_install to put stuff in the right
place.  Clearly this isn't the way it's supposed to be done! :-)

Can someone tell me the right way to do this? Thanks.
