It's not interesting to talk about the mod_perl2 or p5-libapreq ports in their current state because they're terribly broken because of this incorrect assumption about there existing only one version of perl. They need to be overhauled as previously discussed. If you must get them working in their current broken state, I believe we've gone through this before; you could search the list archives or issue tracker.
