Depending on what you've previously done in the www/apache22 directory, 
a configuration may already exist.  'make showconfig' will tell you.  If 
so, you can run 'make rmconfig' in the apache22 port directory, and a 
subsequent 'make config' will display the configuration screen. 
(Actually, I believe www/apache22 does this automatically if a 
configuration doesn't already exist.)

The config screen will allow you to select/deselect various build-time 
options, such as DAV, AUTH_BASIC, etc.

It will work, sure, but make(1) and the port Makefile does this for you.

You're welcome.
