Good news, thanks!

However, what I posted two days ago (those two commits which possibly
broke some things, see above) was regarding to a problem with Apache
failing to start with "Abort trap" when using the PHP LDAP Apache module
(see PR 28259). I just updated pkgsrc and rebuilt all BDB, Apache, PHP
and LDAP related packages: the problem still exists, Apache dumps core
on startup.

Any hints?

TIA, Jukka
