Only if you have a really naff packaging system. Debian has always done
this perfectly fine (in my experience); the most you should need to do is either :

1) Restart Apache after messing around, so the PHP mysql/pgsql/gd etc library 
is loaded.

2) Enable the module for Apache (Debian has the command "a2enmod" for this, after running restart apache).

3) Edit the Apache configuration file to include said module.

4) Create MySQL databases etc.

(I've rarely used RedHat or SuSE in anger, so I could be wrong about
