Yep.  I did forget to mention that it's on a 6.2-pre box.

} I simply used:
} $ grep APACHE_PORT /etc/make.conf
} APACHE_PORT=www/apache22
} cd /usr/ports/www/p5-Apache-DBI
} sudo make WITH_MODPERL2=yes install clean

And the magic bit that I hadn't figured out was setting APACHE_PORT that
way.  That makes it all work, and the dependencies for the package come
out quite sensibly:
Registering depends: mod_perl2-2.0.2,3 apache-2.2.3 libiconv-1.9.2_2 expat-2.0.0_1 p5-DBI-1.52 p5-Storable-2.15 perl-5.8.8.

Gotta love versionitis.

I know there's magic that almost gets it right, because it was finding
my apache-2.2.3 dependency before (when I didn't specify APACHE_PORT),
but was trying to add an apache20 or apache13 dependency as well.

Speaking of APACHE_PORT...  Is it documented somewhere that that's the
variable needed for this stuff?  It's not in the hints in 
/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.apache.mk, and what I do see implies that
setting APACHE_VERSION to 22 should DTRT.
