If you compiled in mod_so, you can compile additional modules separately
and LoadModule them. If you have a statically built apache (no mod_so)
then you need to recompile the whole shebang. 

For case #1, here's my notes from the last time (obviously, edit the
paths to suit your installation):

Now we compile an additional module and load it: mod_proxy.
$ su 
# cd /home/apache/apache_1.3.24/src
# vi Configuration

  - compile with extended API since we are using mod_ssl

  - make the module shareable
  << AddModule modules/proxy/libproxy.a
  >> SharedModule modules/proxy/

- rebuild the makefiles and compile
# ./Configure
# make

- copy the .so manually
# cd /home/apache
# cp apache_1.3.24/src/modules/proxy/ libexec/

Now the module is accessible to apache.
