You seem to have your regex syntax a little muddled. You've got (?!
which is fine for negative lookahead, but *. is shell wildcard syntax,
not regex.

<LocationMatch (?!(js|png|etc)$)>

.. perhaps, though I haven't tried it. It's a shame you're not using
the more up-to-date mod_proxy_ajp rather than mod_jk as then you'd be
able to use mod_rewrite for this and get negated matching, rather than
confusing assertions.
