Apache/web ports advice in TPH

This section:

is out of date, as the very first bit mentions a bunch of old apache
stuff. I'm happy to help update it if someone can say authoritatively
what should be there.

I'm also curious about the advice to install stuff into
/usr/local/www/appname. I vaguely remember that this was deprecated but
it seems to still be true. This is not an academic question because I'm
getting ready to add a web port. :)

Finally, the first sentence of 6.12.2 says that WWWDIR is available to
pkg-plist, but WWWDIR_REL is not. If we're going to encourage ports
authors to use WWWDIR in the Makefile, shouldn't WWWDIR_REL be added to
the default PLIST_SUB?
