In order to install Apache and mod_python on my Macbook, here are the
commands I used:

(Note, I had to install a more recent pcre to make it work.  I forget
why, but I know I had to do it).

Apache: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache2/server --sysconfdir=/usr/local/apache2/etc --datadir=/usr/local/apache2/data --enable-modules=all --enable-mods-shared=all --with-included-apr --with-mpm=prefork --enable-ldap --enable-authnz-ldap --enable-ssl --with-ldap --with-pcre=/usr/local/pcre

mod_python: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache2/server --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/server/bin/apxs

I did not bother upgrading from the stock version of Python since I did
not need anything more recent.
