If you can try, I think that applying the following patch should work 
for you:

Index: modules/generators/mod_autoindex.c

+++ modules/generators/mod_autoindex.c	(copie de travail)

                    (void *)APR_OFFSETOF(autoindex_config_rec, head_insert),
                    DIR_CMD_PERMS, "String to insert in HTML HEAD section"),
+    AP_INIT_TAKE1("IndexDateFormat", ap_set_string_slot,

+                  DIR_CMD_PERMS, "Format sting to be used "),

Everything looks already in place to override the date format. I think 
that only defining a new IndexDateFormat directive in order to 
initialize the already available 'datetime_format' variable is enough.

If IndexDateFormat is not defined, the date format will still be 
"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M" or "%d-%b-%Y %H:%M" depending on the use or not of 
IndexOptions UseOldDateFormat.

If you can try and give a feedback, this could be added in a future release.
