You've got to recompile apache from source to change the file src/include/httpd.h, theres 3 lines in there that state the apache version which you can change to whatever you want. If you really don't want to recompile apache, you could always edit the binary file httpd and replace the version with something else but, it must contain the same amount of characters. If you do go with the latter, don't blame me if your web server breaks all together.
