Why is Mason trying to load the deprecated Apache: :Constants?

I’m trying to get RT up and running on a RH9 box, with the RH

RH ships a not-yet-released mod_perl.

This is a disagreement between your HTML::Mason and your mod_perl.
Please note that Apache 1.3.27 with mod_perl 1.27 is the recommended
combination for RT. While Apache 2.x/mod_perl 1.99 is known to work
for some people, it’s also caused pain for many others.

Indeed, Apache 1.3.27 + mod_perl 1.27 works wonderfully. I had a sense
this was the case, so I had already gone this route. I’ve never thought
much of the way RH handles some of their packages. I always end up
having to hand compile apache for one reason or the other on a RH box.

Thanks for your feedback

BTW RT 3.x looks great! Nice improvements over 2.x…
