	guys, i understand that it is 'improper' to reply to one's
	own post, esp'ly the first reply, but i have discovered more
	of what is ggoing on.  

	First, i tried to start apache22 with the script in
	/usr/local/etc/rc.d; same outcome, just same results are
	starting the binary directly.  nonetheless,  i edited the
	httpd.conf in /usr/local/etc/apache22.  i corrected the directory to read 'apache' rather than 'apache22'.

	so the library is presumably loaded, then something else is
	missing.  i cannot find "ap_user_id"; neither locate nor a
	recursive grep finds this string.  

	when i exec the /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache22 with 'configtest'
	as an arg i get this:

Performing sanity check on apache22 configuration:
httpd: Syntax error on line 104 of /usr/local/etc/apache22/httpd.conf: Cannot load /usr/local/libexec/apache/ into server: /usr/local/libexec/apache/ Undefined symbol "ap_user_id"
root at ethic:/usr/local/etc/rc.d#                                                                  

	question number one, which port builds the apache php5
	library?  number two; is there one that will resolve the
	missing 'ap_user_id'?

	several months ago i built a friend's website; he is is
	contruction which is hurting; i figured having a website
	might give him an edge.  no ..  this was gratis.  not dime,
	dollar, nor favor is involved.  i would like to get apache up
	for myself and my friend.  gotta say that this port wasn't
	handled very well in /usr/ports/UPDATING.  OR, too, i may be
	the idiot de jour.  i only care that my webserver gets up
	again, so thanks for any clues!
