I'm trying to upgrade my apache configurarion to 2.4 and ran into
trouble that I haven't solved yet.

Since setting sysvipc.allow = 1 makes the usage of a jail superfluous
"If it were set to 1, it would defeat the whole purpose of having a
jail;" [http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/arch-handbook/jail-restrictions.html]

I was searching for a way to get it to use any of the other available
methods but haven't found any.
1. Documentation to change the socache provider I haven't found after
ploughing through the docs from httpd.apache.org
2. Disable shm in apr -> no switch for shm found in configure

Anyone have any bright ideas how to get Apache 2.4 to get to use a
different store for the nonce?

(This is basically a duplicate of
item 6 but now for the official port.

Kind regards,
