That's what I've done finally, using threaded Apache with mod_fcgid.  
I've seen that PHP is not ready to be used as a module in a  
multithreaded Apache. Now it's working great, and, indeed, the  
multithread Apache instances can serve all the static content (images,  
etc) blazingly fast.

Thank you very much,
