| Hi,
| I realise the ports freeze is on at the moment, but I'm looking for
| advice. 
| At the moment, I'm trying to package up bricolage[1] into a port.
| Everything seemed to be going OK, but I most have missed the big
| blazing sentence in the INSTALL file which said "mod_perl must be
| statically compiled into Apache" ... so after adding all (and there
| was a lot of them) the required dependencies, bricolage wouldn't
| build because mod_perl wasn't statically compiled. So, then I
| started looking into ways to do this via ports. It came to a
| thundering halt when I could find no other way than creating a
| separate port.
| I was thinking of creating something like the www/apache13-ssl port
| and name it apache13-mod_perl. Is this the appropiate way to solve
| the problem? Does anyone know of any other ports or programs that
| might benefit (or need) a statically compiled version of
| mod_perl+apache.
| Any comments or suggestions, especially by committers, are welcome. 

Why does it need mod_perl statically linked into apache ?
There are known leaks with it as a dso, but it does not harm to have it
that way.
