      Yes. And you want to install mod_perl 1.99_12 released a week ago to avoid all
      the bugs that were resolved since 1.99_08.

      follow the standard way.

      See above. It's ModPerl::Registry.

      It's useful for 3rd party modules. I think you do have it. Some distros call
      it apxs2.

      You are much better off removing modperl binaries and building your own. In
