First, in general, you don't.  That's the whole purpose of an RPM.

Second, if you want to install Apache in /usr/local, the easiest thing 
in the world to do is download Apache from source and build it.  This is 
covered in my HOWTO, step by step:  http://www.johnturner.com/howto

Third, if you still must use RPM, you might try the man pages for rpm 
(man rpm) and consult the --relocate option, which may or may not be 
suitable.
