Default Getting around Jail IP Adresses

So I've got an odd situation here. I work in a Marketing office at a good sized university. I want to set up a FreeBSD 7.0 host system with multiple Apache/PHP Jails for each of our websites (13 and counting). The problem I'm running into is the unique IP requirement for each Jail.

Our current setup is an xserve running Apache name-based virtual hosts. The University's network services department assigns our server a static IP and points whatever domains at it that we want.

I'm trying to avoid asking network services to give us 13 static IP's, because I don't want to use up more than our share of local IPv4 addresses (and the less I have to deal with them the better).

I was thinking I could set up a PF box that forwards packets to a small private network where the Jail system sits and I can define whatever IP's I want. But the question is then, how do I set up the PF box to forward the right packets to the right Jail/IP? Is there an easier solution I'm missing?

I've been searching all over for a good solution and I haven't found one. I appreciate any help you can give me (even if it's "jails aren't the solution here").
