When building mod_jk it detects the latest httpd features and uses them. 
So using our build against 2.2.6 and running with an older 2.2.3 got you 
in trouble.

Since this happens to more users, wwe now added a build flag for the 
future 1.2.27 to make the build backwards comtaible to all 2.2.x. Future 
builds will thus no longer suffer from this problem, but our 1.2.26 
downloads do. So either update your httpd to 2.2.6+ or rebuild mod_jk on 
your target system (which is pretty easy).
