[rt-users] Apache2 / mod_perl2 setup help

I'm attempting a manual install of RT 3.6.4 on a FreeBSD system, using 
Apache2 and mod_perl2.  I have gotten everything installed and mostly 
configured, however I'm stuck at the "Almost there!" message after 
installation and don't know what else I'm missing.

I've been through the docs, the wiki, google, and some mailing list 
archives, and nothing I've tried works, so I'm coming here as a last 

The apache2 server was compiled by hand, not ports or packages, with DSO 
support, running in /usr/local/apache2.

mod_perl2 was compiled using apxs, and built fine and is currently 
installed and supposedly functioning fine as per the server info:

Server Version: Apache/2.2.4 (Unix) DAV/2 mod_perl/2.0.3 Perl/v5.8.8
Server Built: Aug 1 2007 00:14:28

rt was built and installed from source, database was initialized, and all 
seems OK.  All dependencies were built, mostly through "make fixdeps", 
some packages installed manually through CPAN.  DB is mysql5 on a remote 
system, and the database appears to be functioning fine.

Here's my apache config section:


LoadModule perl_module modules/mod_perl.so

website conf:


    ServerName rt.gm-tech.us
    DocumentRoot /data/web/rt.gm-tech.us
    AddDefaultCharset UTF-8
    ErrorLog /data/web/log/rt.gm-tech.us/error/error.log
    CustomLog /data/web/log/rt.gm-tech.us/access/access.log combined
    Options +ExecCGI

# this line applies to Apache2+mod_perl2 only
# Below line might be incorrect, I had to use:
#     PerlModule Apache2::compat
# mod_perl 2.0.1 from FC4 Linux
#PerlModule Apache2::compat

PerlModule Apache::DBI
PerlRequire /usr/local/rt3/bin/webmux.pl

    <Location /data/web/rt.gm-tech.us>
        SetHandler perl-script
        PerlHandler RT::Mason

RedirectMatch permanent (.*)/$ http://rt.gm-tech.us$1/index.html


Anything obviously wrong that I'm missing?  I've got the Apache2::compat 
line commented out above at the moment, but with it either commented or 
uncommented, it doesn't work.

Nothing obvious in the apache logs, all seems OK on that front.
