So glad you asked.

Yes, it will.  A similar bug was filed against apache-perl.  I enabled
it, and discovered via bug reports that it broke the ability to run
Apache as non-root properly.  This is because EAPI_MM tries to create
a file before the config file has been read, so the location to put it
in ends up relative to ServerRoot.  It can be worked around with -d,
but that's an unpleasant circumstance.
