You can't do it if you don't have the module installed. You don't need 
to overwrite the httpd binary; nothing has changed. But you need to 
compile as well as suexec and install it to the Apache 
dir. I don't think this is any different from 1.3.

But again, I'm really not sure why reinstalling scares you. It's just a 
matter of "./configure --with-suexec ... && make && sudo make install" 
and then adding that LoadModule line to your configuration. It's the 
easiest way, even though nothing has changed but those two added files.
