I think you're doing this wrongly. If you are adding stuff to your
system, it should go in /usr/local, right? `make build' will not touch
anything in there. You could ask on ports@ (but search archives first) if
there is a `correct' way of adding httpd 2.

I guess if you are changing the make build process, you are pretty much
on your own, especially with non-trivial stuff. Maybe something else
needs that apache stuff...

`make -V SKIPDIR' will tell you if SKIPDIR is what you think it is.

Better plays the fou' wean than the new coat.
