    yum doesn't know when you install a programme by compiling it that it is 
    there unless you update the package history database, so it goes by it's 
    previous record (the apache version that you superseded).
    There is a yum option to exclude specific packages from a yum update.  I 
    seem to recall that it is --exclude <package> but you can find it in the man 
    The newer version of yum, dnf, is a bit more flexible if you have the option 
    to update, and the command for dnf is -x <package name>
