You can install a newer release of apache by upgrading your portstree
and than compiling it again ( use cvsup for the upgrading part:
if you want to compile the exact version without the ports ( the linux
way ) than you have to download the sourcecode from www.apache.org
extract it, run a ./configure && make && make install to install ( see
docs apache for exact install )
btw. why don't you use apache-2 ?
