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.
