mod_proxy's already built as a module in the default CentOS 4 Apache:

[wmcdonald at willspc ~]$ slocate mod_proxy 2> /dev/null
[wmcdonald at willspc ~]$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/httpd/modules/mod_proxy.so
[wmcdonald at willspc ~]$

All you would need to configure it would be the appropriate LoadModule

[wmcdonald at willspc ~]$ grep -i proxy /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_ftp_module modules/mod_proxy_ftp.so
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so
LoadModule proxy_connect_module modules/mod_proxy_connect.so
# Proxy Server directives. Uncomment the following lines to
# enable the proxy server:
#<IfModule mod_proxy.c>
#ProxyRequests On
#<Proxy *>
#ProxyVia On
#   CacheRoot "/var/cache/mod_proxy"
# End of proxy directives.
