Yes, and I would even go so far as to say that you should use an apxs 
that is created when the target Apache httpd installation is compiled. 
In other words, it will be easiest to use an apxs that matches your 
installation, not merely one that matches the version. I highly 
recommend contacting CollabNet for support. It's trivial to include 
apxs, so they have either overlooked it, or have a good reason not to do 
so. If you explain your use case to them, they are in the best position 
to provide further instructions.
