Building from source that was cvsupped 2008-01-18

Nope. It's a brand new install.

Thanks, I also read that. :)

Yep. I read that too. But as mentioned above, this is a fresh
install from ports. :)

Kewl. I /did/ take the time to do a man objformat, && man brandelf.
Where I see all of this is to become/has already obsolete. But given
that all of my /working/ web servers have /usr/bin/objformat and this
/non/ working box doesn't, I had to ask. :)

But I'd /really/ like to get the web server working. So I'm looking
under everything in hopes of finding the "golden egg". :)

Thank you very much for taking the time to respond.
