Package: apache
Version: 1.3.29.0.2-2
Severity: important
Tags: sid

After recently upgrading a bunch of packages, the apache postinst
script failed.  It appears to be running MetaFont with the httpd.conf
file as input (!!!).  Repeatedly running 

dpkg --configure --pending

produces the same results.

As a side effect, all the apache configuration files in /etc/apache/
and /etc/apache/conf.d/ are being duplicated on each configuration
run.

For instance, I have:

/etc/apache/httpd.conf
/etc/apache/httpd.conf.dpkg-inst.queue
/etc/apache/httpd.conf.dpkg-inst.queue.dpkg-inst.queue
/etc/apache/httpd.conf.dpkg-inst.queue.dpkg-inst.queue.13550
/etc/apache/httpd.conf.dpkg-inst.queue.dpkg-inst.queue.29534
/etc/apache/httpd.conf.dpkg-inst.queue.dpkg-inst.queue.log

The first six files are identical except for a change in the Apache
PID location from /var/run/apache/ to /var/run/.

The last ".log" file appears to be the output from running MetaFont.

As a temporary work-around, I deleted all the *dpkg-inst.queue* files
and edited the postinst script as follows:

--- apache.postinst~    2004-03-08 04:56:19.000000000 -0500
+++ apache.postinst     2004-03-24 16:14:32.000000000 -0500
@@ -37,9 +37,9 @@
     add_webmaster_alias
 fi

-do_all apache
+#do_all apache

-db_stop
+#db_stop

 # this is some sort of hack since we only have dh_installinit down there


Then I re-ran dpkg --configure --pending and it appears that Apache is
running normally now.
