You may want to consider using apache and libapache-mod-perl
instead. It provides the mod_perl functionality as a DSO (Dynamic
Shared Object), instead of being compliled directly into the server.
Well for a long time mod_perl has been known to be less stable as
.so; it's also quite convenient to have the two packages in parallel
since it's config and sysv init files are naturally kept separate
In the meantime I've made a new patch for libmm support in the apache
package. It also supports apache being started as non-root user,
unlike an earlier attempt by David Kilzer (sending him a CC), which
was considered harmful because of this
Please tell me if there's any interest (it would probably even be
useful without mod_accel, since mod_ssl can make use of it too).
Then on the matter of mod_accel I've seen it's really not quite that
easy to build it in a package. It patches stuff "right and left"
(mod_proxy, mod_rewrite, mod_ssl, mod_charset if there, and a tiny
patch to apache itself), and so also the libapache-mod-ssl and maybe
even apache-perl (since it relies on apache-common) packages may have
to be built with the patched sources. If people do mind making that
big changes in those packages, maybe separate apache-accel,
libapache-accel-mod-ssl (and even apache-accel-perl?) packages should
be made so one can choose between those. If that's no option either,
then the only way (short of maintaining debian packages privately)
would seem to be a /usr/local install :(
