Another option is the range from; thttpd, mini_httpd and 
micro_httpd. Performance decreases as you go down the range, but if you 
want something just to (for example) display MRTG graphs on an internal 
web page, micro_httpd is more than enough. Performance from thttpd is 
surprisingly good, especially under load.
