You can do one of these:
1) Grab the *source* RPM from like FC10 (or whatever version of Fedora
Core has the httpd version you need).
2) Grab the source RPM for CentOS 5.3 and study the .spec file. Make a
new .spec using the desired source tarball from the apache.org site.
In either case, make sure rpm-build is installed and all of the
necessary -devel packages and fire up rpmbuild and build your own RPMs.
There exist on the web various resources on what goes in a .spec file
and how to run rpmbuild and about building your own RPM files. Google
is your friend.
