Turned up this informative post:

The Horrors of mod_jk and Mac OSX

I spent the day today trying to get mod_jk (and/or mod_jk2) working on
my powerbook, so I could have a real webserver in front of my
appserver. This turned out to be amazingly frustrating, largely due to
the OSX dynlib shared libraries just being "different" (they're pretty
much tied with the Win32 DLL format in that regard). The macosx binary
directory for mod_jk2 on the apache mirrors is empty for a good
reason: it doesn't even faintly build on OSX.

It turns out the secret sauce is not to use the apache2 from fink
(which ended up costing me several hours), but instead to use the
mod_jk 1.2.5 for macosx with the 1.3 apache that comes with the
system. If you then follow the normal mod_jk HOWTO, everything works
fine out of the box. Posted by kris at
