Subject: apache, ap-perl and pthread

since perl is compiled with threads by default, ap-perl doesn't work
anymore with apache-1.3. This is because ap-perl is linked with threads
and httpd isn't. Adding -lpthreads when linking httpd fixes this. For now
I've done this by hand when building apache for the few servers where I
still use apache-1.3 + mod_perl.

What is the best way to fix this in pkgsrc (if we really want to fix it) ?
