That's what I figured -- and why I've been trying to communicate about
this for ~ a month already.

It's not really that *I* have an issue with a workaound -- *that* I
can always do "locally".  But I've recommended FreeBSD ports be used
"out of the box" for  installs around here.

I can understand non-functional / troublesome ports for some obscure
packages, but a working apache22 + bdb46 combo seemed a rather "basic"
and not-unreasonable expectation.

My own fault for *making* the recommendation, I know.

I'll keep trying to get somone to look at this.

Thanks a lot!
