I can't answer specifically, only generally.

For each file in a package contained in a transaction set, rpmlib computes
a file disposition, in this case "skip".

The likeliest scenario is

	The file is owned by (and installed from) another package.

Perhaps you have multiple copies of apache installed?

What does "rpm -qa | grep apache" have to say?
