FreeBSD 6.1:Apache22 - How do I enable suexec?

I've recently been playing around with building a virtual hosting server based on FreeBSD 6.1 and virtualmin. Everything from installing the base system to recompiling the kernel to enable quotas has gone smoothly, with google filling in the holes nicely. But I'm stuck on enabling the suexec module in apache to allow virtualmin to configure.

I've got as far as working out that I need to re-compile apache with...

CONFIGURE_ARGS=

--enable-suexec

--with-suexec-bin=/usr/local/sbin/suexec

...somewhere in the make file. Do I need to create a new .if entry or can I just add the 2 CONFIGURE_ARGS to the other ones? Are the .if entrys for creating the make config menus? And are there more CONFIGURE_ARGS I need to enable suexec? I've looked at the apache documentation but I can't find anything FreeBSD specific. I know enough to know that FreeBSD is different to Linux, but I don't know exactly how.

cd /usr/ports/www/apache22/

cp Makefile Makefile.old

edit Makefile

CONFIGURE_ARGS= --prefix=${PREFIX_RELDEST} 

--enable-layout=FreeBSD 

--with-perl=${PERL5} 

--with-port=${WITH_HTTP_PORT} 

--with-expat=${LOCALBASE} 

--with-iconv=${LOCALBASE} 

--enable-http 

--enable-suexec 

--with-suexec-bin=/usr/local/sbin/suexec

make install clean

And thats how you enable suexec.
