You should be able to get the source for the original package and buil
against the latest apache. Apache in etch may have changed, but there
probably are newer sources that build against the new apache. This is
a general answer comming from an rpm guy would normally say "go get
the old or newer srpm for this and rebuild", but even though your in
Debian land, its likely to hold true.
