It is not enough. There are a lot of other things to change. Like
all the config files. The minimal complement for the addition of
"-f" to apachectl, is a re-configure + make install (WITHOUT MAKE!),
as I wrote in my original message, but it is ugly. What I proposed
as the ideal solution, was a script to replace pathes etc., after
moving the Apache binary tree to a new location.
