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 
extract it, run a ./configure && make && make install to install ( see 
docs apache for exact install )

btw. why don't you use apache-2 ?
