        FWIW, they now have a native FreeBSD version (FP extensions
        SR1, the port needs to be updated BTW) -- works like a charm with minor 
        changes to one of the port patches.

        The binaries are 3.3, linked dynamically -- compat3x will get this

        Caveat: if you misconfigure your VirtualHost in some way, any call
        to the FP-patched Apache to that subweb's /_vti_bin/ will make it
        (apache) segfault.

        Will debug this if I find time.
