libtool 1.3.4 (installed from ports)

Thanks for the pointer to the FreeBSD note in the readme, I had missed 
it, BUT....

I still get the same message after recompiling apache with the 
--enable-threads flag set. I think it has more to do with the fact that 
there isn't a libpython2.2.so built (as mentioned by 
gdamjan at mail.net.mk).

I would suggest adding that either to the docs on the website (and to 
the README of future releases). The standard python built from source 
doesn't appear to do it for you and according to the python FAQ, item 
3.30, Why is the Python interpreter not built as a shared library?, it 
won't until v2.3. If this IS required by mod_python, it should be at 
least given a mention, and optimally, there would be instructions about 
how to create it.
