[rt-users] RT 2.0.11, FreeBSD and perl 5.6 port

I'm currently running a test machine with DEC600au and FreeBSD-4.5 Release
with Apache 1.3.22 and mod_perl as well as perl5.6.1 from the ports tree.
What I did is not recommended unless you don't mind re-installing perl was
to nuke the entire 5.003 install that was on the machine. This provided me
with a clean slate .. then went to the rt src dir and did a make testdeps
and make fixdeps .. after all of this was done. I did the post installation
things as documented in the install file and off I was into RT land. I hope
this helps someone.

Kind Regards,

You still have old 5.003 libraries somewhere.  Find them, kill them, then
restart apache.  This is especially the case if you upgraded to 5.6.1 as a
result of CPAN including it as a dependency for some of RT's dependencies.

Took me an hour to reinstall the dependencies over a modem (home machine)
once the above had been done.  FreeBSD comes default with 5.003, and
mod_perl just does not like the old libraries.
