Sorry - my bad - I should have checked before I typed frantically :/

No idea I'm afraid... I'm grappling with diff files and 'patch' right
now, great fun... in a tooth-pulling fun kind of way :)

Incidentally I don't think the example I gave of apache/suexec was a
very good one - totally by coincidence (isn't it always?) I'm attempting
to build apache with suexec support right now and doing this:

[18:02:20] root at whitestar /usr/ports/www/apache13-modssl# make \

isn't enabling apache-suexec, let alone any of the other options :(

I just found this thread totally by coincidence like I say after searching 
for help on the topic:

saw the name in the first result there and thought mmm, that name's familiar :))

Ah well back to my search,

PS Have you come across portupgrade - v useful tool for keeping ports up
to date...
