FreeBSD and Phusion Passenger

If I don’t write this one down I won’t remember it, especially at this hour when I finally got it to work! I was having a devil of a time on the passenger-install-apache2-module … While it says it “found” everything, I guess it really didn’t … The Apache2 Portable Runtime stuff apparently needs directories to be found. Inevitably, this is how I got it to work:

setenv APXS2 /usr/local/sbin/apxs
setenv APR_CONFIG /usr/local/lib/apache2/apr-config
setenv APU_CONFIG /usr/local/lib/apache2/apu-config

Of course, I found those one at a time Googling all over the Internet and the last was found within the source notes at github … A bunch of what I found had nothing to do with FBSD … Anyway, so the result should look something like this when run:
