I don't know for sure, hopefully someone with more rt experience than myself 
will stop you before you shoot yourself in the head.  It certainly sounds 
like the testdeps is not working right.

The first thing that I would look at is why you had to do the force of the 
install.  Was it only because of the failed tests, or failed dependencies to 
the module?

If you have 1.54 installed, and it is searching for 1.53, maybe someone on 
this list could tell us exactly what rt needs the apache::session for, and 
after your install, you could tell us whether that part of rt works or not.
