The home of the package, http://packages.debian.org/stable/web/apache.html
and http://packages.debian.org/stable/web/apache-common.html will tell you
of what the packages exist (bottom: Source Code: [dsc]
[apache_1.3.26.orig.tar.gz] [apache_1.3.26-0woody3.diff.gz]
Now you get both files, patch the orig with the diff and look at
the ./debian/rules file to see how the configure is done.

You can also set up your /etc/apt/sources.list with a deb-src to be able to
 apt-get source apache apache-common

What is utfs? Or do you mean rtfm?
With kind regards,
