    I don't use mod_perl myself, but some observations:

    (1) In woody, libapache-mod-perl actually installs
    in /usr/lib/apache/1.3/400mod_perl.info, you get:

LoadModule: perl_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/mod_perl.so
Description: If you can do it with perl, you can do it with Apache.

Which may, or may not be the same thing as mod_perl.

Also there is a package apache-perl (also in woody) that has mod_perl
(perl_module?) statically compiled in.

I tried using apache-perl, with no luck. I also tried installing libapache-mod-perl, which seems to succeed, but fails to pull in the apache package (which GnomeAPT claims is unavailable).

I was able to get Apache and mod_perl by building from source.

BTW, the mod_perl Guide[1] includes a section[2] for testing the installation of mod_perl.
