See:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/misc/FAQ.html#passwdauth

If you want to void your warranty, there are some modules like mod_auth_sys
at http://modules.apache.org/ that say they can do this.

If you would like to be more sane and use a separate password database for
the web, the technique is described here:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/howto/auth.html
