Subject Re: DynaLoader problems, bigtime problems.

I've had this same problem on FreeBSD using mod_perl 1.21 and 1.21_03
with modules other than DBI.  It seems like several people on the list
have experienced this, but I haven't seen a good explanation of how to
fix it yet.  I'm going to test with 1.22 soon and see what happens.
See more details below...

A complete error:

/usr/local/sbin/apachectl configtest
Syntax error on line 281 of /usr/local/etc/apache/apache.conf:

The contents of

moonpatrol# nm /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i386-freebsd/auto/Storable/

         U PL_sv_undef


With other modules that I have similar problems with (MD5), the
undefined symbol is in instead of

I've tried a bunch of things, to no avail.  Considering so many people
have asked this same question recently, I'm beginning to think there
may be an actual problem, instead of just some confusion on my part.
