Sure. Here's the bottom of httpd.conf. Nothing significant here.

You can see the PerlPassEnv SERVER_HOME above the header parser and
authentication handlers. Right now, I'm just testing the feature. Also, I
get an error if I put PerlPassEnv inside the tags. Practical
Mod_Perl says I can do this but the server won't start in this case.
