Examine the src.rpm to learn how Fedora's httpd package is configured
and built. Reproduce the same with your own build. Even better, continue
using the src.rpm as the base for your own updates.

Sure you can.

"rpm --justdb --noscripts --notriggers --nodeps --erase httpd"

If you don't know what it does, consult "man rpm" first.
