I'm not *sure* if this is what you want, but ./configure --help
lists:

- --localstatedir=DIR : modifiable single-machine data [PREFIX/var]

I would guess you need to recompile Apache, changing it to each
user's home directory.

Something like:

./configure --prefix=/usr/bob/apache

would probably be it, given that the above "localstatedir" implies
that the PID is kept under <apache-dir>/var.

I have my Apache "prefix"ed into /usr/local/apache2 and my PID file
lives in logs/ :) Which seems to contradict common sense.

Either way, if you use --prefix then the httpd.pid file ends up
somewhere under it.

That should be it.
