I didn't use the same port. It's been a while since the install, but I
certainly didn't add the mod_FP to the make file. I have a documented list
of the order of various installs like this which means I need to go find it
for exact details. However, with the mod_ssl combo, I know I did this for
starters:

First, I went to: /usr/ports/www/apache13-modssl
# make install clean

THEN, I added (# make install clean) frontpage port... have to look at my
recipe for accurate details as to which, but I have since used portupgrade
and still works. Had thought it might break on the upgrade but it didn't.

Again, I didn't "customize" the make file.....

Hope this helps.....
