So I answer to myself. 

Some body tell me it's like  

"My gut reaction was "Are you familiar with the game of Russian Roulette?".

Well....it's work...almost. 

Here what I do : 

	Upgrade kernel and userland from 7.4 to 8.2 on the host.

	Upgrade all userland of my all jail to 8.2

	Until now everything work fine.

	Delete old libs/files/man 

	and...apache stop working. 

	After do a

		portupgrade -fR apache

	everything work again. 

	Be careful the 

		portupgrade -f apache

	is not enough. I don't known which ports have some problem but I
	got a SSL error. So first I just update apache. It's not good. Then
	apr, etc...finally I upgrade with «-fR» and everything work again.

	For subversion you need to force upgrade neon too.

and for who want to ask me : NO I don't play Russian roulette.
