I just found out today that our apache installation was installed without threading support (we need this for mod_wsgi).

Will the following in the apache22 ports folder reinstall our apache with threading support? More importantly, will it do it seamlessly (leaving mod_wsgi working, http_root in tact etc?).

make configure      // Select thread support
make deinstall
make reinstall

The above commands worked. Some forum posts seemed to suggest that ports doesn't mess with any files you've touched (therefore you're configuration files are saved).
