Hm, with the following patch applied to www/mod_perl2 it builds fine for me on FreeBSD 8.4
/ 10.0 (amd64) an apache-2.4.10

The patch does some adjustments in the port / pkg-plist and fetches a complete archive containing
all patches so the sources are the same as the upstream (r1602105) trunk/httpd24threade branch.

After applying the patch and using the command `make patch' it is easy to compare the sources
against upstream sources (check out before)

Easiest way to apply the patch against the unmodified port:

$ cd www/mod_perl2
$ fetch
$ patch -p1 < mod_perl2-2.0.8_apache24.diff

I've updated the patch because it needs some additional handling for pkg-plist if build against
apache-2.2.x (
