[Bug 242729] mail/openwebmail generates lots of perl errors; some prevent it from working

I'll fix openwebmail errors. I've been doing it to my own installation for
HOW do I submit fixes for openwebmail? It can't be harder than getting
another webmail working. (Note: I'm not crapping up the bugzilla log for
the original problem
with this email.)
Speaking of which: roundcube might be nice if it worked. Sadly, a fresh
install fails DURING post-pkg-install setup, with this error:
Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function filter_var()
A google search finds that others are having this problem. The roundcube
apparently down, and a google cached copy of the relevant reply yields this
"This function is part of php-filter extension which is usually enabled.
You're the first person with this disabled/not-installed. I guess, we
should mention that in the INSTALL file." (December 2019)
Sadly, there is no such mention in INSTALL, and I haven't the faintest idea
how to enable this thing. Freebsd pkg php74-filter is installed. Is this
an Apache problem? A php problem? Beats me. So there's 60 minutes of my
life I'll never get back.
This email is free of malware because I run Linux.
