The apache2/Makefile documents APACHE_MPM, which can be set to "prefork"
(default) or "worker", which is the multi-process, threaded server.
However, I note that on NetBSD-2.0 with an older version of apache2,
using "worker" caused the httpd process to hang occasionally.  You
may have better luck with the more recent versions of apache2.
