with that kind of installation this is not possible.
What about compiling apache by yourself?
Get the latest tarball from
unpack the binaries, e.g, to /usr/local/apache1.3.22
and type 
./configure --help
if you have successfully compiled the apache with your options (maybe
running on port 82)
you may stop the RPM apache on port 80,
copy the binary from /usr/local to /sbin (where the original httpd is -
type ls -lrt `find / -name "httpd" -type f` )
and replace the /etc/httpd.conf with the new one - change 82 -> 80;
or do the same with symbolic links,
since then your freshly compiled httpd is automatically started after
(rc) reboot
