Ancient Apache Version on SuSE EL 11

How can it be that such a modern Linux distribution ships such an outdated Apache version?!? Apache 2.4 is availably since 4 years. Are they crazy?
# cat /etc/SuSE-release
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)

# httpd2 -V | grep version
Server version: Apache/2.2.12 (Linux/SUSE)
If they have applied additional patches, then that is totally unclear from the version number.

Consequence? Customer's brave admin compiles Apache 2.4 manually. Of course he will then walk away and forget about that box that's completely exposed to the Internet. Very bright idea.
