Big thanks to Chris, Andre, and everyone else for all of the guidance!  I think 
I'm going to do this:

1.  Compile Apache 2.2.19 in /myuser/ space (since I don't have root or admin 

2.  Ask the admin to do his part in taking the compiling code and installing it.

I have a question about doing this with mod_ssl, but I think it would be best 
for me to start a different thread with this.  Thanks again!

The "# which apxs" was intended to be a command to determine the
location of Apache httpd's "apxs" program, which is a
configuration-dumping utility to help with building Apache httpd
modules. apxs if often found in /usr/sbin/apxs so Leon's post was using
that as an example:

> ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --enable-api-compatibility

Replace /usr/sbin/apxs with whatever the result of "which apxs" is. If
that doesn't return anything, you may have to have your SA install the
Apache httpd development package or something. It might also be called
"apxs2" (that's the case in my Debian Lenny environment).

Good luck,
