This is where its going a bit wonky, as mod_perl by default is
apache-wide, not specific to a specific virtual host.  I'm finding the
same problems with trying to get RT, RT/FM and my own Mason-based archiver
running on the same apache instance under mod_perl (don't like fastcgi ;)

http://www.weedns.com/apache_tuning/fast_modperl_mini_howto.html has a
couple of suggestions that I'm intending to try at some point.

At the moment, without trickery, it looks that way.  My previous
suggestion will work for getting mail into multiple RT installations
correctly, but won't work for running multiple RT installations from the
same apache instance.  Seperate Apache instances it looks like :(
