You should *really* be using a newer version of Apache if you're trying to
do things like this.  HTTP is a separate module and has been for some
time.  A while back, Ryan and Greg S. and some of the others put some work
into factoring out HTTP from the core as much as possible.  I haven't
tried it myself, but I'm pretty sure it *is* now possible to build without
http enabled.  Give it another try with the current CVS (or at least
2.0.22 or better) and see what happens.
