I have a freshly compiled
Apache/2.2.8 (Ubuntu)
After startup Apache error.log is happy with the confirming notice
... resuming normal operations

Running Tests on the localhost confirm equally that mod_perl is working fine (eg. get all the information that $r has to offer ;-)

The relevant part of my httpd.conf:
    PerlModule ModPerl::Registry
    PerlSwitches -w
    Alias /perl/ /path/to/perl/
    <Location /perl/>
        SetHandler perl-script
        PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::Registry
        Options +ExecCGI
        PerlSendHeader On
    PerlWarn On
    PerlRequire /path/to/
----------------------------------------------- end httpd.conf

Now that I decided to give PageKit a try and do the install
make test stops with

[  error] You are using mod_perl response handlers
[  error] but do not have a mod_perl capable Apache.
make: *** [run_tests] Error 1

Did I miss the point?

Search for the error message didn't satisfy me, neither at google nor in the list. Therefor the new thread.

Does anybody have a clue how a mod_perl handlers using system can't be capaple?
