I can see your point about the content of the fix.  But the bug report 
does say the following (in the Audit-Trail):

    Port has been updated since this PR has been sent.
    It seems to install flawlessly.

As you say, the one line fix (in 'do-install') would not seem consistent 
with your experience installing fastcgi with Apache 1.3, where you don't 
have the problem.  (I'm installing RT with fastcgi and Apache 2). Just 
looking at the Makefile didn't reveal to me that the fix proposed in the 
bug report wouldn't be appropriate for Apache 1.3.

But my question was motivated by the apparent contradiction between the 
above-quoted statement in the report and the fact that the port wasn't 
actually updated (perhaps for the reason you give).

Meanwhile, I'm left with a mod_fastcgi port that will not install, as 
delivered, with Apache 2.  Yet the RT port depends on the fastcgi port.
