I'm unable to get mod_perl to run on 1.6-macppc. All I get is
     Syntax error on line 212 of /usr/pkg/etc/httpd/httpd.conf:
     Cannot load /usr/pkg/lib/httpd/ into server: 
/usr/pkg/lib/httpd/ Unsupported relocation type 10 in 
non-PLT relocations

It's been posted as PR pkg/13771:

This 'fix' has been supposed,:
But Jason R Thorpe noted, that this patch is not correct:
	That reloc type is not a PIC reloc.  If it is present in the mod_perl
	module, it means that it was not compiled as PIC code, which is the
	real problem.

Does anyone know, if there's a work-around? I'd very much like to get 
mod_perl working on my NetBSD macppc machine.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
