yes, it looks like a patch was included to fix the mod_python problem.

Macports tries to track the most recent stable releases from upstream,
so I try to update the ports I maintain whenever there is a new stable

I don't understand why you would want to use both the workaround
(downgrading apr/apr-util) and the fixed mod_python which should work.
Only you can determine what course of action is most appropriate for
the systems you are running.

Those look like the environment variable bug (fixed in trunk - we
really should make a new release if only for that fix).

It looks like that ticket was re-opened for another reason (it
installs a file that conflicts with mod_python).
