During an installation of RT 3.6.6 on Fedora 8 under Apache 2.x the 
dependencies try to install the CPAN module Apache::Request which in 
turn wants to build libapreq-1.33 (very very old and not compatible 
mod_perl 2.x)

Here's the text from the dependency checking script

Install module Apache::Request
Going to read /root/.cpan/Metadata

Running install for module Apache::Request
Running make for G/GE/GEOFF/libapreq-1.33.tar.gz
CPAN: Compress::Zlib loaded ok

Scanning cache /root/.cpan/build for sizes
Deleting from cache: /root/.cpan/build/libapreq-1.33 (11.3>10.0 MB)

[file listing cut for clarity]

   CPAN.pm: Going to build G/GE/GEOFF/libapreq-1.33.tar.gz

Please install mod_perl: 1.25 < version < 1.99


So why is this happening and what should be done about it in order to 
get RT 3.6.6 installed?
