I have apt-cacher running for me on a local Debian box. I installed
apache on the box just so that I could run apt-cacher on it. I think
all I did was aptitude install of apt-cacher. Apache was installed
automagically by the packaging system. Serving support for apt-cacher
is not heavy duty web server service. Almost any old box will do.
