WebSphere Application Server is not related to Tomcat, except that
they implement some of the same standard.

IBM HTTTP Server is  Apache HTTP Server-based with notable difference
of SSL (runtime and module). Versions 6.x are based on 2.0.x and 7.0
is based on 2.2

mod_jk would be replaced by the websphere plugin
mod_perl you'd have to provide yourself and may take a little effort
to build against IHS.
