I'm working on revamping the way Apache and Apache modules are built. I'm
resigned to stepping on toes and raising a big stink. The current system
for building Apache from ports sucks hard and if the current maintainers
aren't willing to resolve the issues then they need to take a step back
and ask themselves why they are 'maintainers'.
Are you willing to maintain and test a 'mod_fp' port? I've got Apache,
mod_ssl and mod_php mostly sorted out and was going to attack mod_fp
once I managed to atain sufficient courage. If you are in a position
where you can test a 'mod_fp' port it would help me out quite a bit.
