Dear Request Trackers and NetBSDers,

I'm trying to install RT 2.0.8 - There seems to be some problem with some
pieces of the apache->perl->dbi->mysql in that when I attempt to start
apache I get the following error message from line 352 in my httpd.conf
which is: PerlRequire /home/rt2/bin/

It appears there is a problem with not being able to locate symbol PL_op
when using data dumper.

I've included the perl packages installed on this NetBSD-1.5.1 system
along with the output of make testdeps.

Any hints would be appreciated.
