I've recently moved from the default Ubuntu/Debian apache2 packages to installing the Apache HTTPD from the official tarballs. I have everything working fine, but I wanted to know if there's any easy way to change to use the sites-* and mods-* folder structure for enabling and disabling vhosts/mods rather than manually specifying them in httpd.conf. Are there any scripts or configuration files that do this?

Just copy over your full apache2 directory from your Debuntu package. There's no special fu -- it's just the way the config includes are set up which allows that structure to function.
