You would _have_ to roll yourself - I don't think 4.2.2 supports the latest
versions of apache2 as it was just a security release.
Adam Conrad is, I believe, aiming to have apache2 support ready for when 4.3
gets a full release; until then it's very unlikely since he would have to
start releasing CVS drops, which I seriously doubt he would want to do.

a real language ;-)
