      EXPAT_CONF variable is not added to './configure' arguments when building apache13-modperl.  So, it is not possible to disable builtin expat.  So, XML::Parser is linked with wrong libexpat, and apache segfaults. 

apache13 is ok.  
      cd /usr/ports/www/apache13-modperl

See that it still says "+ using builtin expat";
