I gather that Gentoo allows you to tweak the way things are compiled by 
the emerge process. You want the equivalent of:

$  ./configure --with-apxs=`which apxs` --with-python=/usr/bin/python2.4
$  make
$  make install

This works on my Debian system  (except that apxs is apxs2 for apache2) 
with both python 2.3 and 2.4 installed. The default /usr/bin/python is 2.3.
