On trying to run SOAP::Lite through mod_perl, I get a segmentation fault when restarting Apache (I am loading the module through a script so it gets compiled at start time).

How do I fix this problem?

This happened to me a while back as well (troubles writing mod_soap clients).

The problem is that Apache usually ships with expat-lite, which is incompatible with XML::Parser. (source)

You need to re-compile Apache, adding the following option (don't ask me why :)

Eg, in my case, I cd'd to my mod_perl src directory and entered:
perl Makefile.PL USE_APACI=1 EVERYTHING=1 DO_HTTPD=1 SSL_BASE=/usr/loc +al/ssl \ APACHE_PREFIX=/usr/local/apache APACHE_SRC=../apache_1.3.27/src \ APACI_ARGS='--enable-module=ssl,--enable-module=rewrite,--disable-rule +=EXPAT,--enable-module=so make && make test && make install

Your particular set-up will probably vary.
