De-lurking in a rather crap way - hi all  :)

I'm attempting to get subversion installed on a fairly new machine 
and am stumbling at the 'get apache2 installed' stage. I'm wondering 
if anyone can point out where I'm going wrong.

In brief:

>cd /usr/ports/www/apache2
>make  -DWITH_BERKLEYDB=db42
>make  -DWITH_BERKLEYDB=db42 install

installs ok, or so it seems at first glance (httpd running and 
listening on port 80). Further checking shows a bunch of:

>/libexec/ /usr/local/sbin/httpd: Undefined symbol 

in /var/log/httpd-error.log and browsing to the server in question 
brings up an empty page rather than the standard 'default apache' 

Googling for "apr_bucket_alloc_create" doesn't get me back anything I 
can understand, tbh.

What am I missing? (apart from any idea on what to do now...)



Some other (hopefully relevant) details:
