Of course I read your post. Why when there are misunderstandings do
people always assume it's the listener's fault and not their own?

Are you saying you are not *able* to remove the old Apache or not
*willing* to? If you are not *willing* to, then I cannot help without
more information on why. If you are saying you're not *able* to, I
think you're mistaken, or there is more information that you haven't
shared yet.

"make deinstall" will remove a port regardless of any dependencies. I
assume you're talking about replacing the old apache with the exact same
version, just with mod_ssl compiled in. In that case you still do what
I mentioned earlier:
1) build the port w/ mod_ssl
2) make deinstall reinstall
3) pkgdb -Ff (to tell the port system that prior dependencies should
now point to the mod_ssl'd apache)

I'm happy to help if you want, I just need more information to be effective.
