mod_dosevasive meets debian

I have recently installed the latest sarge apache package. I am now wanting to install an apache module to prevent DoS attacks. mod_dosevasive seems like what everyone is using.

Now I've worked out that with debian you need to run the command modules-config, and that before that you need a line in a .info file. And the other .info files all refer to a .so file. But I downloaded the tar file and it only had .c files in it.

Now I guess I could look at compiling the source etc., but I would have thought it would all be a bit easier than this. How do debian users normally install mod_dosevasive?

I thought about somehow installing the rpm, and was then pointed to using alien, but then thought that this was a very strange road I'm travelling, so I must be doing something wrong.

Can anyone help me here?

I've let this perculate a little, and had another try, but still no luck. I've read the
README that comes with mod_dosevasive, but it doesn't tell you how to create a
.so file for itself. And doing something like this just doesn't work at all:

gcc -fPIC -shared -o mod_dosevasive.c

Is there anyone out there? Do debian users use a different package, or just allow
DoS attacks to occur all the time?
