I was hoping to get it working within the ports framework for future
maintainability.  Since I'm not using a standard dir anyway, it
doesn't look like it's going to be possible or worth any further
effort.

Anyway, one more question related to this.  When building via apaci,
it says to use APACHE_PREFIX.  What exactly is it looking for? FreeBSD
doesn't install apache in a traditional spot all under one directory,
such as /usr/local/apache.  It seems reasonable that it is looking for
the directory where libperl.so is going to live
(/usr/local/libexec/apache under FreeBSD).  Is this a good assumption?
