Yes, there is only a minor change that is needed to the port to get it
working with FP 2K SR1.

See PR 18581, PR 18788

I did find a problem with fpsrvadm.exe. If you have libcrypt linked to
libscrypt, then fpsrvadm.exe creates an invalid MD5 password (I believe the
buffer RTR used to hold the password returned from the crypt function is too
small for the MD5 passwords).  I have informed RTR and they said a fix would
be available in the next release.

For the time being the port (apache13-fp, or upcomming mod_frontpage) will
still need to use the BSDI extentions, and statically compile the apache
server with libdescrypt.a on systems where libcrypt is linked to libscrypt.

I haven't come across this problem.  But I do know that it will segfault if
you are not using a patched suexec, as the unpatched suexec will not allow
fpexe to run.
