I have mod_perl and apache from ports
I need to build mod_perl into apache not as DSO

Then run make extract in /usr/ports/www/mod_perl and cd to the work/mod_perl-1.26 directory and read the INSTALL file. You can remove BUILD_DEPENDS, RUN_DEPENDS and change USE_APXS to 0 and so on from the Makefile at /usr/ports/www/mod_perl. Just read the INSTALL file.
Don't forget, you also need to make extract your apache13 src and rebuild it statically.
Why you need to build mod_perl statically? If you don't have a valid reason, just don't do it. Perl is a very critical utility in FreeBSD, a slight misconfiguration to mod_perl can break your entire OS.

Who told you that? And that's why you should install mod_perl from the ports collection as patches and installation procedures and all the hard works are already done by that port maintainer for you.
It's your choice if you choose the other way. So don't ask for help but yourself if you choose to do it differently.

httpd -l <<that shows the statically linked modules?
ie: for me returns
and if mod_perl was static it would be there
