Certainly you can build your own Apache(/mod_perl) to run off a CD.
But watch out for the files Apache has to have write access to! (Like its own pid-file, log files etc.)
My advice: Set up Apache to use some directory in the system /tmp for lock-, log-, pidfiles.
And you could even find some filesystem for your CD that is supported on multiple platforms and put an Apache for each of those platforms on the CD - so no matter what, your clients can use that CD.
The other reason of course is to show them how cool you are ;-). I always find that important, too.
