[Gllug] installing PHP with Apache

I am trying to install PHP/MySQL and apache on my home machine and have 
run into a problem.  I have done this a couple of times before without 
too much problem but I get an error this time.  The latest versions of 
Apache and MySQL have gone on there no problem and are working, but not 
PHP.  First I unpack it and do a configure:

./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs --with-mysql

which results in success but with the following warning:

| WARNING: Your /usr/local/apache/bin/apxs script is most likely broken.
|                                                                    |
| Please go read http://www.php.net/manual/en/faq.build.php#AEN61338 |
| and make the changes described there and try again.                |

I have checked the page referenced but the apxs errors/changes do not 
seem to apply, the sections of the /usr/local/apache/bin/apxs file are 
either correct or do not exist.  So I ran a make, but it gets to this bit:

and dies.  Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong here? 
(HINT: 'Installing PHP' is not an answer :-)
