 Hello Duncan,
 I see that my answer was a bit brief to you. I'll take some more time 
 for you. It's no problem at all. Indeed I'm currently very interested in 
 new users because pkgsrc is a quite complex system and I want to learn 
 about the typical pitfalls that beginners have. (Especially for 
 improving the documentation.) So, you're not wasting my time at all.

 I had a look at the tarball myself, and the most interesting file is the 
 pkgsrc/www/apache2/Makefile.common. The first line of that file is
      # $NetBSD: Makefile.common,v 1.19 2005/10/17 10:37:11 tron Exp $
 for me. And in line 7 I see APACHE_VERSION=2.0.55. What does your 
 pkgsrc/www/apache2/Makefile.common look like?
