portupgrade -o www/apache22 -rf apache13\* 

will install apache22 in place of apache13-modssl and force a rebuild
of everything that depends on apache13-modssl


  APACHE_PORT= www/apache22

into /etc/make.conf before trying that is generally a good idea too.

Note that this sort of command is not going to cover all of the edge
cases.  apache13-modssl has a different dependency tree to apache22 --
for example, libmm (devel/mm) is not needed by apache22.  Having libmm
floating around unused shouldn't break anything though.

Not relevant to the OP, but if you were a mod_perl user, you would
need to do a bit more work and install the www/mod_perl2 port in place
of www/mod_perl when upgrading to apache22.
