That's funny. Works fine for me just compiling from ports. You need
to start by installing the apache13-modssl port: mod_ssl can't be
installed as a stand-alone module to load into plain apache, and
furthermore any other modules need to be compiled against the
A very useful trick is to add:
into /etc/make.conf, which convinces most apache related ports to
depend on the mod_ssl-ified apache.

httpd -l only shows the *compiled in* modules, not the dynamically
loaded modules. My httpd with both mod_perl and mod_ssl produces:
% httpd -l

If you can add mod_ssl or mod_perl configuration directives to
httpd.conf (outside any <IfModule ..></IfModule> block and run
'apachectl configtest' without apache complaining, that means your
apache does have the required support.
