The container in the default 5.x install is a completely unmodified
Jetty 8.x (soon to be Jetty 9.x) with a stripped and optimized config. 
The config for Jetty is similar to tomcat, you just need to figure out
how to make it work with Apache like you would with Tomcat.

Incidentially, at least for right now, you CAN still take the .war file
out of the jetty install and put it in Tomcat just like you would have
with a 4.3 or later version.  We are planning on making that impossible
in a later 5.x version, but for right now, it is still possible.
