Through a wrapper ;-) That's what wrappers are for.
Apache will, AFAIK, not allow you 'source' in any shell scripts during
run-time for security reasons - however - you can

a) add all necessary environment variables in your httpd.conf file
   using SetEnv(If)
b) use a wrapper that sources in GNUstep.sh and then starts apache.
   Apache will use the environment set upon launch-time -- just make
   sure that GNUstep is properly set-up for the user you use to run
   your httpd as, eg. www:www or nobody:nogroup.
   /path/to/cgi-bin/printenv should show the GNUstep environment (that
   is, it does on my box)
