BAD NEWS:  There seems to be a problem with ExtUtils-MakeMaker 6.12 
included in perl-5.8.1-RC3.

I successfully built and tested mod_perl 1.28 using RC3 on Windows XP / 
MS VC++ 6.0, but I just thought that I'd give libapreq-1.2 a quick whirl 
as well, and found that it doesn't build.  I get the following error:

link -out:..\blib\arch\auto\libapreq\libapreq.dll
libapreq.def : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol boot_libapreq

If I downgrade ExtUtils-MakeMaker to 6.03 (the version included in 
perl-5.8.0) then it it's all OK.

The question is: why is it trying to build "libapreq.dll"?  It should 
only build "Request.dll" and "Cookie.dll", which would probably explain 
why "boot_libapreq" is undefined.

I'll continue looking into it myself, and can supply more info to anyone 
that wants it, but I thought I'd better raise the alarm quickly first.
