Tomorrow, first thing when I get to work, I'm going to try untarring the
mod_tsa patches for mod_ssl into the ports/www/apache13-modssl/files
directory and running make. As long as I don't do make install, I can
always make clean and try again, right? 

I think I'll clone apache13-modssl into my home directory first, though.
