Sorry, I have the flue,

I mean, if you use 

./configure -prefix=/usr/local/apache-2.0.39

Then 2.0.39 is installed in its own directory, leaving previous installs 
untouched.  You can run either as you wish.  You can even run different 
releases concurrently if you configure them for different IP addresses.
