In our new package guidelines [1], it is said that we only accept libraries. Apache httpd is not a library, so we may or may not accept it. However, I personally think that binary program packages are equally important, and our policies may change in the future.

So why don't you post your build scripts on e.g. gist.github.com, and we'll see what we can do with it.
