Are we to presume that you want all of these to start upon machine startup?
What sort of OS are you running on? 

You can just make a startup script according to which ever OS you are
using that calls apachectl with the appropriate parameters for each of them.
Or else, just make several copies of apachectl, one each for the different
configs andme each according to use.  They are small and won't eat up much
