This isn't really a Fedora question.  It would be better taken up with
the authors of SOAP::Lite or on

In any case, SOAP::Lite does not work with the 2.0.0 release of
mod_perl.  It only works with mod_perl 1.x and the pre-RC5 releases of
mod_perl 2.0.  There was a significant API change and some CPAN modules
haven't changed to deal with it.

My solution was to roll my own RPM of SOAP::Lite and patch in support
for mod_perl 2.0.x.  Someone (me, maybe) should report the bug/patch
upstream, but I'm not sure if much work has been done on SOAP::Lite
