Hi Erik,

Please update your ports tree, then apply this patch:

I reinstalled the port successfully like so:

make WITH_MODPERL2=yes install clean

Whenever the error message "make: don't know how to make w" appears in a
port build, it indicates that the port requires gmake to build properly,
but some Makefile is calling the BSD make instead.  That's caused if
"make" is called directly or if the Makefile sets MAKE=make and calls a
subdirectory Makefile.

If this patch solves the problem, I'll ask skv at to commit it
for you.
