FreeBSD update broke Apache perl modules

After a recent freebsd update fetch && freebsd update install Apache would not restart properly. It was complaining about missing perl modules it relied on. So we rebuilt the perl port and all its dependencies.

sudo portmaster -m BATCH=yes --no-confirm -D -r perl

The -m BATCH=yes chooses defaults at setup screens and bypasses them, --no-confirm avoids prompting at the command line, -D keeps distfiles in tact and -r updates all its port dependencies. Once this was done Apache fired right up!
