Have you done a complete buildworld/buildkernel/installkernel/reboot
single/installworld/reboot cycle yet (with mergemasters in appropriate places as documented
in the handbook)? I'd strongly recommend that, then if problems persist, try
pkg_deinstall()ing the apache and reinstalling it from the port.
There are a lot of things that can get whacked by just slicing over a new library from -
STABLE into a -RELEASE machine. -STABLE is at 4.9-RC now, so you're almost a full
point release ahead of where you are coming from. In FreeBSD terms, that's a lot.
I'd rebuild apache after that anyway to catch the mod_ssl updates as well.
Obviously, at this point, I'd clean the usr/obj directory entirely, and do a make cleandir &&
make cleandir in /usr/src before starting the buildworld process. You may want to re-cvsup
again following that as well, to ensure everything is in place. That guarantees you the
cleanest and most straightforward upgrade path.
