Yes, I agree, that's one thing, but ...

I would say that he already did what he was supposed to do (making
sure that all instances of Perl and Perl modules use the same version,
5.16). So I'm confused why it still fails. In theory at least that
default configuration shouldn't have failed. He wasn't even able to
install mod_perl2, let alone p5.16-libapreq2.
