make apache2 not making mod_cgi

First asked over in FreeBSD-Stable, until I realized that was the wrong
place for it. Then at FreeBSD-Ports, until I fgured there was an even
more specific place for it.

I'm new to FreeBSD and ports, and don't know make well yet, so this
could just be something I messed up on my own, redoing the ports tree
and all. But the first couple of times I remade apache2, I got a
mod_cgi.so installed. Now, the past couple of times I've remade it
(perhaps since Wednesday or so?), it's making all the modules I want
except mod_cgi. I've cvsup'ed a couple of times since then, and I've got
WITH_MISC_MODULES=yes, but in config.log I find this:
  $ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-layout=FreeBSD
--with-perl=/usr/local/bin/perl5.8.7 --with-port=80
--with-expat=/usr/local --with-iconv=/usr/local
--libdir=/usr/local/lib/apache2 --includedir=/usr/local/include/apache2
--enable-v4-mapped
<snip a bit of irrelevant modules etc.
--disable-autoindex --disable-asis --disable-cgid --disable-cgi
--disable-negotiation
<snip>
--enable-mods-shared=access auth auth_anon auth_dbm auth_digest dav
dav_fs ldap auth_ldap actions alias asis autoindex cache cern_meta
charset_lite deflate dir disk_cache env expires file_cache headers imap
include info log_config logio mime mime_magic negotiation rewrite
setenvif speling status unique_id userdir usertrack vhost_alias proxy
proxy_connect proxy_ftp proxy_http ssl suexec cgid suexec
--with-mpm=worker i386-portbld-freebsd5.4 --prefix=/usr/local
i386-portbld-freebsd5.4

Note that in --enable-mods-shared, the rest of the MISC category is
included, except cgi. I also find these lines in Makefile.modules that
might be relevant (since I'm not familiar with make syntax, I'm not sure
under what conditions these lines will be active):
WITHOUT_MODULES+=   cgi
...
MISC_MODULES=       actions alias asis autoindex cache cern_meta \
                cgi charset_lite deflate dir disk_cache env expires \
                file_cache headers imap include info log_config logio mime \
                mime_magic negotiation rewrite setenvif speling status \
                unique_id userdir usertrack vhost_alias

So, if it's not actually broken in the port, how do I fix it so it
installs mod_cgi on my system? Even if it is just a dirty hack to inject
the option into a Makefile or configure. If it's broken in the port, of
course, that should probably be fixed!

I ran make in script, and found this amongst the output:
...
checking whether to enable mod_suexec... checking dependencies
checking whether to enable mod_suexec... shared
checking whether to enable mod_cgid... shared
checking whether to enable mod_cgi... no
checking for pthread_kill... no
checking whether to enable mod_dav_fs... shared
checking whether to enable mod_vhost_alias... shared
....

but I suppose that should be fairly evident from the config.log.

Since the time I posted this to the stable list, I've done make
rmconfig, make clean, and when that didn't cut it, I did (in order) rm
-rf /usr/ports/*, sysinstall, cvsup ports-supfile, portmanager -u, make
deinstall/reinstall, just to be on the safe side. I still get no mod_cgi
when including WITH_MISC_MODULES.
