As I was checking, I noted a severe problem: Apache2 was serving garbled
data. I really don't know why and I'd appreciate any help on this area.

Anyways, stuff is still available on ftp, and this is not serving

If somebody got time, please test this on current DFly:
- cd /usr/ports/www/apache2 && make install
- serve large files from apache2
and tell me whether you are getting garbage in the files or not. I don't
know if this is a kernel issue or apache2 or a combination.


ps: Apologies to all people who wasted time when fetching the garbage.
