If that was the goal of the /opt/local/apache2 prefix, it has failed,  
because you cannot activate both apache and apache2 at once.

$ sudo port activate apache
--->  Activating apache
Error: port activate failed: Image error: /opt/local/share/man/man1/ 
dbmmanage.1.gz is being used by the active apache2 port.  Please  
deactivate this port first, or use the -f flag to force the activation.

Also, there has been a request to change apache2's prefix back to / 
opt/local to make it more normal.
