(OT) apache and modperl and cygwinby nop (Hermit)

nop has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi -- Sorry for a slighly non-perl question but I am quite stuck and am wondering if any Monks can offer advice.
Disclaimer: I am quite new to Apache and mod_perl.
I'm trying to develop code on a windows box to later run unchanged on a linux apache production server. I first tried the native win apache binaries with indigo mod-perl. The problem is that that system (I believe) doesn't support libapreq, so I can't use Apache::Cookie or Apache::Logfile. I don't a windows C++ compiler so I couldn't / didn't want to try compiling Apache on windows.
So next I opted to install Cygwin and try to run Apache thru it. I used the Cygwin setup.exe program and asked for 'install everything', which it did, and which (I think) should have included Apache. Cygwin seems to have installed OK; I can run the shell and emacs and the windowing system and such. However, while the apache docs are there, and apachectl and httpd.exe are there, I can not start apache, either from w/in Cygwin or from outside. Here's an example
I am quite confused.
Can someone suggest the how I can run apache on a win box and use Apache::Cookie and Apache::Logfile?
