No, it isn't.  Apache is the name of the foundation, and one word
of the project's title.

The project is Apache HTTP Server.  Simply put, httpd.  If you want
to label it as 24, that would be /opt/httpd24.

Our Netware distribution has this mistake, still.  I hope this
is corrected with version 2.4.

Our package names are all httpd-n.n.n.tar.gz etc.

Unless you want a crazy tree of /opt/apache/httpd[/][##]/...
