Ummm... Guilty as charged. The only reason I updated to 5.20 was that
the pkg repository changed.
However, I think that making 5.22 the default before fixing up (for me
at least) some issues with
modperl support might be a bit premature.
Just for my information, and because I just know you will laugh and you
need some amusement:
Where and what do you stick 'USE_PERL=XXXX'? /etc/make.conf?
I don't mind trying to compile the modules I use and see if they work.
