I think all is well now with getting the perl5_22 variants installed!
sudo port self update
port info mod_perl2
mod_perl2 @2.0.9 (www)
Variants: perl5_16, perl5_18, perl5_20, [+]perl5_22, universal
sudo port install mod_perl2 +perl5_22
port installed mod_perl2
The following ports are currently installed:
mod_perl2 @2.0.9_0+perl5_22 (active)
sudo port install p5.22-libapreq2
was executed without error.
So perhaps the most recent trouble was due to too soon a macports update.
