Thanks for pointing this out. I'd thought that the port system in Freebsd was assured to be internally consistent with all other stuff in the system by a central team (QA?). I didn't realize that each port was from a different person, and that the process could get held up for weeks or months. I guess your advice is what I should do. I'm a little nervous about undoing what's already been done, and think I might just start over with db44 to be safe. Knowing this now, I guess I should also make a list of the programs and versions I need, and check each & every one for problems before I start again. If something popular like the Apache Web Server has long standing unresolved issues like this, other programs may too. A friend is pushing me to use Ubunutu Linux instead, saying that stuff like this doesn't happen with it, but I'm not so convinced. After being 'sold' on the Freebsd ports, it's worth some more reading. Thanks.
