It's probably better to "cpan Jifty". You'll get a more recent release
with a smoother install.

You should be able to install mason 100% safely without
Apache1/mod_perl, though some of the tests may test mp1. 

It's _probably_ safe to just install it without installing the mod_perl
dependencies.  Jifty certainly doesn't need them.
