doesn't matter
SUEXEC_BIN is set to a file in /usr/local/apache regardless of
the configured setting of HTTPD_ROOT.  If someone has ExecCGI
turned on under UserDirs, upgrades with HTTPD_ROOT = something
else, and runs it, the CGI scripts will be run as the server.

Naturally, you should check things like this before you upgrade,
but some folks won't.
