OK…I’ve seemingly overcome the Big Sur 11.1 crashes with p5.30-libapreq2 installation by installing MacPorts.
Unfortunately, to install p5.30-libapreq2 requires installing mod_perl2 variant +perl5_30. But building the latter fails! See: https://trac.macports.org/ticket/62169 <https://trac.macports.org/ticket/62169>
(That sinking feeling from getting deeper and deeper toward an abyss!)
