Sorry, I don't know how to resolve this issue.  Hopefully the FreeBSD
port of these tools will eventually include appropriate symlinks or some 
other work-around.

You also need to modify the aclocal call in buildconf, because libtool.m4
isn't where aclocal expects to find it.  Someone has been kind enough 
to provide me with a FreeBSD shell, and we learned that passing the
directory name (/usr/share/aclocal?) to aclocal with "-I" seems to fix 
this (along with using gmake instead of make).  However, we got stuck 
getting Apache::Test to compile the c-modules correctly and bring up an
httpd daemon to test.

If there's a simple way to resolve these FreeBSD build issues, I'd love
to include that in 2.03-dev.
