Apache 2 was recently released
will it be part of 10.2, or the next OSX update?

Probably not for sometime. mod_php still doesn't work under Apache httpd 2.x among other Apache modules. I doubt mod_hfs works either.
As of this writing, powerpc-apple-darwin isn't a recognized host-type and it won't compile out of the box...you can trick the configure script with a host-type of powerpc-apple-macos or powerpc-apple-rhapsody, but the build process will exit with an error...
You can manually 'fix' this by disabling pthreads where the build fails, but I don't know if that will break anything else...

I built Apache 2 "out of the box" on OS X with no problems or tweaks of any kind, and it ran fine (with the standard complement of modules--no mod_perl, PHP, etc.) Are you sure you downloaded the release version? (2.0.35, IIRC)

Yup, day of release, it choked when trying to build htpasswd.

Well, I just tried it again and it worked, so I dunno what's up...
[code]# wget -q <a href="
# tar -xzf httpd-2.0.35.tar.gz
# cd httpd-2.0.35/
# ./configure --with-layout=Apache
creating cache ./config.cache
checking for chosen layout... Apache
checking host system type... powerpc-apple-darwin5.3
checking target system type... powerpc-apple-darwin5.3
checking build system type... powerpc-apple-darwin5.3
# ./httpd -l
Compiled in modules:

A jump from v1 -> v2 is a pretty big? Are there any fundamental differences between Apache 1.3.x and 2.0.x?

; target="_blank">Plenty</a>. It's not quite ready for prime time yet. I'm not installing it until mod_perl and mod_php will compile with it, and I'm sure that Apple won't include it in Software Update for a few months yet.
