I'm happy to work on this, and I can sense your frustration. if I understand
you correctly, what you want to do is this:

$ perl Makefile.PL -apxs /apache/2.0.48/worker/perl-5.8.3/bin/apxs
$ t/TEST -conf

and then copy all the resulting configurations, .so files, etc to a box that
doesn't have make and still run the perl-framework.  yes?

anyway, so I ran the above two lines then tarred up the results and untarred
to a different directory.  I even removed the apxs binary.  with the
attached patch

$ t/TEST

seems to work fine.  the difference is that instead of running 't/TEST
-clean' behind the scenes when a new cwd is detected I run 't/TEST -conf'
which seems to be a bit more intelligent but still allows the tests to run.

let me know if this helps you at all.
