Not really no.

skv@ doesn't really like perl too much so he split this out so just the
C module could have a port and the perl-glue which depends on the C
module is a slave port.  I would have just added a flag
WITH_PERL_GLUE=yes or something, but he's a committer and I'm not, so he
probably knows something I don't. :)

I will look at this and submit an official PR, but it won't happen until
later tonight America/New_York time.

If you don't want to wait, you can revert the patch and force autoconf
259.  I don't recall exactly how to do this, but you should be able to
find it in google or on freebsd's site.

/me *sigh* I should probably start reading apreq-dev at apache.org again.
