I've been ignoring this problem for some time because I didn't care 
about the apache2 on this machine.  I finally decided to look into the 

When I try to start apache2 I get:
P3R-272# pkg_info|grep apache
apache-2.0.48_3     Version 2 of the extremely popular Apache http server
apache-ant-1.6.1    Java- and XML-based build tool, conceptually similar 
to mak
P3R-272# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache2.sh start
Syntax error on line 237 of /usr/local/etc/apache2/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /usr/local/libexec/apache2/mod_ext_filter.so into server: 
Cannot open "/usr/local/libexec/apache2/mod_ext_filter.so"

The syntax appears correct in httpd.conf:
LoadModule auth_dbm_module libexec/apache2/mod_auth_dbm.so
#LoadModule auth_digest_module libexec/apache2/mod_auth_digest.so
LoadModule ext_filter_module libexec/apache2/mod_ext_filter.so
LoadModule include_module libexec/apache2/mod_include.so
LoadModule deflate_module libexec/apache2/mod_deflate.so

It appears this module is not here:
P3R-272# ls -l /usr/local/libexec/apache2/mod_e*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel   7654 Feb 18 20:25 
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  10401 Feb 18 20:25 

If I comment out LoadModule ext_filter_module, apache will start (but I 
get some very weird errors in cvsweb and bugzilla gives me "internal 
error" messages.

Searching the mailing list archives only got me hundreds of unrelated hits.

Any ideas guys?
