Hello fellow NetBSD users,

I recently installed NetBSD 2.0 RC4 and installed Apache and also mod-perl
(ap-perl-1.29nb1) from pkgsrc. I then added the appropriate line to my
httpd.conf file:

LoadModule perl_module lib/httpd/

However, this resulted in Apache core dumping each time I tried to start it.
If I remove the line, apache starts fine.

Is it just me and my setup? I googled but found nothing helpful or recent on
the issue. My system is running the following:

Kernel	: 	Generic
Arch		:	i386
Perl		:	perl-5.8.4nb1
Apache	:	apache-1.3.31nb7
Mod_perl	:	ap-perl-1.29nb1

Many thanks
