Download and build it yourself.

You'll need the httpd-devel.i386 package installed first.

after downloading and uncompressing it's as simple as

cd tomcat-connectors-1.2.26-src/native
./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs
make install

then add the line

LoadModule jk_module modules/

in httpd.conf

and configure mod_jk.
