Compiled Apache using the built in 'ports' Makefile
I am using the htpasswd program with the -c switch.
I keep getting an Authentication Failure when trying to login to a page
that is protected by .htaccess / .htpasswd.
The Apache error logs indicate a password mismatch error:

user Jason: authentication failure for "/home/": password mismatch

The strange thing is that this .htpasswd file works fine on my old BSDi 2.0 
machine - with an old 1.2.x version of Apache.

I have checked newsgroups and searched this entire site but havn't found any
