What do you want to do?

First of all I was not clear whether you were running Mac OS X (client version) or Mac OS X Server.

If you're running Mac OS X (client version) and are using Apple's Apache, then there's almost no reason not to switch to MacPorts apache2. Simply turn off Apple's Apache in System Preferences > Sharing > Web Sharing, install the MacPorts subversion port with the +mod_dav_svn variant (which will also install MacPorts apache2), configure apache2 by editing /opt/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf (possibly copying over any changes you had already made to Apple's Apache configuration file at /etc/apache2/httpd.conf), then start it with "sudo port load apache2". You do not need to (and should not) uninstall Apple's Apache (or any other software Apple provided with Mac OS X); MacPorts lives its own separate existence in /opt/local. For additional help using MacPorts, write to the macports-users mailing list.

If you're running Mac OS X Server and are using Apple's Apache, then you have a harder decision, because Apple provides a lovely GUI for configuring Apache, which you would no longer be able to use if you switched to MacPorts apache2.
