Apache 2.2.4 with mod_ssl start up problem

I am running 6.0 on i386 and have updated apache22 with the latest  
and greatest from my cvsup'ed ports tree (I also think openssl was  
updated to the latest beta 0.9.8e, which might be connected or maybe  

All went fine until I have come to restart Apache when I get this error:

httpd: Syntax error on line 83 of /usr/local/etc/apache22/httpd.conf:  
Cannot load /usr/local/libexec/apache22/mod_ssl.so into server: /usr/ 
local/libexec/apache22/mod_ssl.so: Undefined symbol  

Well line 83 is the module load line in httpd.conf and has always  
been there, so I think that's a red herring. I have done a large  
amount of Googleing and come across similar people with similar  
problems, one of which was not answered, one of which was fixed by a  
re-install from port (Which I have done twice now so I don't think  
that's it) and one that was in German. Now my German is  
embarrassingly bad and you can't get a decent translation when it  
comes to problem fixing so I am not much wiser except it was  
suggesting something about a linked library, ldd and something in a *. 
4.so version of a library but that's about all I could grasp :-(

Can any one shed any light as to which FM I need to R so I can RTFM  
or what I can do to fix this.

Many thanks
