[olug] simple alternative to mod_rewrite?

   We've outsourced our web hosting to an unresponsive vendor and one of our
(intentionally) dwindling set of customers moved to using a blogspot blog
... and now they're furious that we can't simply 'point' their domain to
this new location. I have control of DNS, I have a bare Apache 2.2, and I'm
hearing that using mod_rewrite is a one liner ... but getting it going is a
half day job for someone who has done it previously.

   Can anyone suggest a simple package for taking a single incoming request
to a web server port on an otherwise unused machine and directing it
elsewhere? Perhaps this is a netcat problem ...
