Does RHE not come with mod_perl? I would expect that it does.

If you are thinking about going the fedora route, you might as well go  
with Debian. Afterall, fedora is just Redhat's attempt at being Debian  
which as we all know is the best distribution, and also the fastest  
growing[1], mainly because everyone is finally coming to realize how  
much Redhat sucks. Not to mention your Debian setup will be as simple  
as doing: apt-get install libapache-mod-perl libhtml-mason-perl
