after updating one of our production machines with a new
bulk-built perl, ap-perl and apache, I saw that we could not
start the new apache:

# sh /etc/rc.d/apache start
Cannot load /usr/pkg/lib/httpd/ into server: /usr/pkg/lib/pe=
rl5/5.8.0/i386-netbsd-thread-multi/CORE/ Undefined PLT symbo=
l "gethostent" (symnum =3D 1846)
/usr/pkg/sbin/apachectl startssl: httpd could not be started
# =

A local recompile of perl and "make replace" fixed the problem.

Anyone have any idea why the bulk-built perl package could not be
used together with apache?
