You can try editing the apachectl script and add a umask line in there.

You can force all files that get created in a directory to change group
to the owner of that dir by using chmod g+s [dir]. Then, any file
created in it will be in the group that owns the dir.

You can't force permissions though. You can set the systemwide umask,
but users are free to change them individually.
