Dear All,

       I get undermentioned error when I tried to build mod_perl,
could anyone please let me know the fix.

------------------- ERROR -------------------------

Also I have a question with mod_perl, As I am Asterisk user I am
figuring out the way to call perl script from dialplan.

exten => 88,1,Answer()
exten => 88,2,AGI(check.pl)
exten => 88,3,Goto(enter,s,4)

I guess after installing mod_perl I would be able to do above function
in freeswitch as well, is it something like this?

    <extension name="perl">
      <condition field="destination_number" expression="^88$">
        <action application="answer"/>
        <action application="perl" data="check.pl"/>

looking forward for your reply!
