I've installed mod_perl, and even tried enabling it, unfortunately it seems to be preventing apache from starting.

LoadModule perl_module modules/mod_perl.so

here's the error.

/usr/sbin/apachectl: line 84: 25312 Segmentation fault      $HTTPD -k $ARGV

I switched httpd to run httpd.itk instead of worker.

I get the same problem with i686 Arch. I just did a pacman -Syu this morning, and a pacman -S extra/mod_perl right now. I picked up Perl 5.14 with this morning's update.

Looks like some kind of bug: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/25008
