how about leaving it where it has been for years? I suspect many  
people who use the port have become "attached" to the current  
location, including me.

Do a Google search on "/opt/apache2" and you'll see that the choice  
of /opt/local/apache2 is perfectly sensible when compared to where  
other "systems" put the application and files.

Is there a compelling reason to put it somewhere else?

Note please, "/opt/www/" contains files to be served by apache, not  
the application and it's configuration files, etc.

thanks for listening.
