Thanks for the help... sorry for a long delay in reply.

Ok.... after a long time of no BSD, I have finally booted it up again..

Last night I took the step of deleting the entire /usr/ports/www/apache13-php
directory, deleting the package, then reinstalling it.....

However,  the directory has not been restored, so now I'm a bit stuck....

How do I restore the directory??

OK, the way the FreeBSD ports PHP works, it compiles PHP into the apache
binary statically.  To get it working, you need to:

# cd /usr/ports/www/apache13-php3
# make
# cp /usr/local/etc/apache/httpd.conf /some/where/safe
# pkg_delete apache-1.3.9
# make install

You now have to manually merge the /some/where/safe/httpd.conf and the
new /usr/local/etc/apache/httpd.conf.  If you run Emacs or Xemacs, then
try using the M-x ediff command, its very good for that sort of thing.

BTW, the attached make.txt didn't actually show the problem.  To
correctly capture both stdout *and* stderr, do the following in the csh:

# make |& tee MAKELOG
# make >& MAKELOG

In sh/ksh/bash/zsh, do:

# make 2>&1 | tee MAKELOG
# make >MAKELOG 2>&1

BTW, it's much easier to paste from an xterm than from the console...

Good luck!
