I forgot to mention that this was with httpd 2.2.3 with the 
httpd-included APR.

However, i included a LoadModule in the server config, and it seems 
that mod_ftp doesn't even load since it uses obsolete functions 
(that's probably the reason for those "implicit declaration" errors).

Among the culprits are:
apr_explode_localtime (obsoleted by apr_time_exp_lt)
apr_sockaddr_port_set (obsoleted by apr_sockaddr_info_get)

and so on.

I'm not confident in how to handle the more complex changes (the 
apr_sockaddr_port_set related ones for example) since there are 
comments like "Magic here when port = 0" in the code, and the 
replacement functions doesn't explain that magic ;)

So, has anyone tried using this lately, or have you just been blindly 
compiling :)
