Want to add mod_proxy to httpd.conf

I need to add mod_proxy to my httpd.conf apache configuration; I tried to 'make_deinstall' and
'make install ' again but I dont see mod_proxy loaded. I know/think its not loaded because I did not see it listed in httpd.conf where the rest of the 'mod_blank' files are; and also the reason I need it is becuase I need it for webmin as a proxy and when I restart apache or 'apachectl configtest' it gives me an error message saying it cannot accept 'proxypass' because it thinks the module is missing...;
my options are to fix this probblem or does anyone recommend using the webmin server (i forgot its name) mainly this server is going to be a webserver....

I recommend looking up the files according to httpd.conf - look for mod_alias for instance. Then check if the mod_proxy library is located in the same directory. If not, search it with pkg_info -Lx portname and symlink it to the modules directory. Then you can add it in the same way as other modules are.
