That would certainly save you a bunch of time and effort.  Because gcc
is a large software project and not completely trivial to build from
scratch.  And then apache is another large software project and again
not completely trivial to build from scratch.  Doing both back to back
is a double hit of building the tools to build the tools.  Getting a
precompiled binary, even if not completely optimal, may still be best
for you.

Yep.  You need the milling machine to build the lathe to make the
crankshaft but what you really needed was simply the crankshaft.

Don't forget that symlinks may be able to adapt one location from one
place to another.  This is not really an apache forum.  But possibly
you could put symlinks in the filesystem to make the new installation
look like the old installation.

You have to be careful about the httpd.conf file because it will
specify dynamic libraries to load at program start.  It is usually
best to keep the httpd.conf file with the server it matches,
specifically for the shared library configuration, and instead make
the modifications that you need to make to the given file.  I don't
think I said that very well but hopefully you know what I meant
anyway.

Good luck!
