David is assuming you are asking about the Apache Java based http 
server (and servlet/jsp engine) Tomcat.  If you really meant the Apache 
HTTPd server, the reason we don't ship with it is HTTPd is written in C 
and must be compiled to each platform where our distributions will run 
on a generic Java VM.
