First of all, why would you do this?  Secondly, it won't work
because the 
port will simply tell you that it's already installed and suggest
uninstall the previous version first.

Well, it didn't used to.  And if you HAVE to uninstall the old port
before compiling the new one... isn't that already broken?  How long
does it take to compile Apache?  You want your servers down that long?
Once again, I am going on old information, but back then, it was
rediculous how short-sighted some of the ports scripts were.

I hate to butt into this thread but compiling apache on your primary web
even having a compiler on an internet exposed machine, is just plain

Surely this OS (FreeBSD, IIRC) wouldn't require such lunacy?
