hmmm...well the first thing I did was a pkg_info which didn't show any of my needed reqirements. So i went into the ports dir and successfully did "make install" and then the packages showed on a pkg_info command.
My thinking is they are now installed and perl should see them...but when I run the cgi in the error logs I get errors on the line numbers that reference the GD package.
So I thought somehow perl needed to be told about these new packages.
I thought me running pkg_add would be equivelant to what I did with "make install" which was successful?
