needed for apache 2.4
Well, I haven't been able to get this module to work for me. It compiles fine, but setting up a auth restricted directory just results in a 500.

I'm also up for just removing the module as it's been nearly 10 years since it's had an update and Apache has mod_authn_dbd that can use PostgreSQL.
This package has been masked for removal after 2016-03-11.
Package has been removed.

www-apache/mod_auth_pgsql was removed per bug 548974. It hasn’t been
updated for somewhere around 10 years and has been superseded by
mod_authn_dbd for quite some time.
Additionally, mod_auth_pgsql is susceptible to severe security bug(s)
that have gone unresolved by upstream, which has also disappeared.
If you’re still using mod_auth_pgsql, may God have mercy on your soul.
