I tried installing this on my machine out of the box (It's a Mac OS X 10.3.5
with Xcode - development tools like compilers). It asked if I wanted to
configure stuff and I said no, and all seemed to go fine until it wanted to
find my apache config....

charles> make install
[blah blah blah testing stuff, all looks good, ...]
make: Circular W3C-Annotations-Kit-1.tar.gz <- Annotations dependency
dropped.
tar xzf W3C-Annotations-Kit-1.tar.gz
(cd W3C-Annotations-Kit-1 && \
 perl Makefile.PL PREFIX= && \
 make && \
 make test && \
 make install)
Checking if your kit is complete...

OK, time to give up...

and round and round I go (the variation is that if I say I no it tries for a
plain flat text file. But it doesn't seem to do anything or get me out of the
loop...

any clues?
