If I may ask : why do you even need an Apache in-between ? a simple tcp 
router or firewall with port re-direction of port 80 to your back-end 
server would do this nicely.
It would send the packets "as is" without any interference, run on a 
small diskless box costing about 500$, and run for years without trouble 
any.  Run IPCop on it, and you would also have a nice web-based 
configuration interface with plenty of filtering options, and whatever 
logging you want.
