I installed www/ap-perl and www/ap-Embperl to use Embperl with my
Apache/1.3.29 (Unix).

As suggested by ap-perl Install notice I added:

LoadModule perl_module lib/httpd/
<Files ~ "\.pl$">
	PerlHandler         Apache::Registry
	PerlSendHeader      On
	SetHandler          perl-script
	Options             +ExecCGI

to my httpd.conf
After shutting down the server and starting it again I found no httpd
running. I got no errormessage and apachectl configtest
says: Syntax OK. After removing the mod_perl statements I can start
httpd w/o problems, but of course w/o mod_perl.

After each unsuccesful start of apache I find a new empty file like=20
/var/run// where the number (PID?) varies.=20

/h[a4@] (([c<] ((k)|(|<)))|((k)|(\|<))|(x)\s+\
