Just fetched pkgsrc from anoncvs this afternoon.  Apache 1.3 won't build,
and I'm at a loss as to why.  The end of the build output is below.  



Configuring for Apache, Version 1.3.28
 + using installation path layout: pkgsrc
Creating Makefile
Creating Configuration.apaci in src
Creating Makefile in src
 + configured for NetBSD platform
 + setting C pre-processor to cc -E
 + using "tr [a-z] [A-Z]" to uppercase
 + checking for system header files
 + adding selected modules
    o rewrite_module uses ConfigStart/End
      enabling DBM support for mod_rewrite
    o db_auth_module uses ConfigStart/End
      using Berkeley-DB/1.x for mod_auth_db (-lc)
 + enabling Extended API (EAPI)
   using MM library: /usr/pkg (installed)
 + using builtin Expat
 + checking sizeof various data types
 + doing sanity check on compiler and options
** A test compilation with your Makefile configuration
** failed.  The below error output from the compilation
** test will give you an idea what is failing. Note that
** Apache requires an ANSI C Compiler, such as gcc.
