I seem to recall that the lack of a fork() that's not vfork() was a big showstopper for porting Apache when I last looked. Although that was some time ago, and UnixLib may have a real fork() now, or you might be able to use Apache 2 in threaded mode using the new pthreads stuff in UnixLib - I've not looked.

There are several other webservers that are good for most people that'd be much simplier to port: thttpd and Cherokee spring to mind. (They're both much quicker than Apache too, so they might just be usable on RISC OS)
