Yes, I see that. But I tried to make WITHOUT_SSL and I get: "don't know 
how to make WITHOUT_SSL. Stop"
same thing for WITHOUT_SSL_MODULES.
I have tried about all I can think of from commenting out the ssl_module 
in httpd.conf to reinstalling the port but nothing seems to work.

Something smells rotten here...

Now, here's a weird possibility to think about... when reinstalling 
FBSD6.2 and adding some of the programs, I noticed that the compiling 
seemed to have detected already installed configuration files... this 
seems impossible, but .... I had deleted the partitions on the disk but 
had not done a full erase... Could that possibly be causing the problems?

Once I have the apache2.2.4 installation corrected I still have to deal 
with CUPS and OpenOffice. Strangely, Xorg was a "piece of cake"
Java 1.5.0 from SUN was impossible - wound up with Diablo-java...

Thanks for any further help
