I just did a source build and install using the subversion code from a 
few minutes ago (about 13h00 CST), and did a "make install" and "make 
install-data" as root.  chown -R freeswitch.daemon /opt/freeswitch, and 
tested using the default freeswitch config files.

Lo and behold, doing a "load mod_sofia" told me that it was already 
loaded.  A "reload mod_sofia" succeeded.

Apparently the code in the launchpad.net release is FUBARed.

The thing I don't like about this is that we don't have .deb files for 
the install.  However, I've "worked around" that issue by creating a 
tarball of /opt/freeswitch as soon as I created it and changed the 
ownership, before I even ran it the first time.  That way I've got a 
clean install tarball I can use for doing distributions to client 
machines, instead of having to do a source build on client machines 
(which would have been u-u-u-gly, as client machines are supposed to be 
stripped down with application and data only, not source of any kind.)
