Not sure if this is the correct way to achieve such a setup, but I believe 
you could modify one of apache's MAKEFILE's to point to a different $PREFIX. 
Then in your sartup scripts you would be able to start each instance of 
apache independently. that's the quick, not putting any thought into it way 
i'd try going.
