RFE: www/apache2 +openssl97 variant to fix bug
|Reported by:||ecronin@…||Owned by:||imajes@…|
OpenSSL 0.9.8 (security/openssl) seems to have a known mis-interaction with Apache and large uploads, which is particularly exercised by Subversion. see <http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#ssl-negotiation-error> for a less than helpful confirmation.
Since OpenSSL 0.9.8 hasn't been fixed, the attached patch adds a +openssl97 variant to apache2 which I can confirm fixes the inability to commit large files into Subversion. It is uglier than I would like, but because /opt/local gets looked at before /opt/local/lib/openssl97/ it is necessary that the openssl port be deactivated for the configure and build of apache2 +openssl97 to pick the correct library. Additionally, I'm using the internal registry_active API to check that this is the case. I'm not opposed to someone smarter than me at Portfiles fixing any of these problems.
