Right, I am working on this now.  I think this will all work nicely.
However, there is still one issue.  Apache's Configure generates
src/include/ap_config.h which is used for building large modules like PHP
outside of the confines of the Apache build tree.  It ensures that I have
the right #define's needed by the various Apache header files.

It would be nice if there was a short-circuited APACI configure mechanism
which made it possible to tell it to do nothing except generate that
header file.  That way my install steps could be:

/apache-1.3/configure --build-ap-config
php3/configure --with-apache=/apache-1.3
make install
/apache-1.3/configure --prefix=/tmp/apache --activate-module=src/modules/php3
make install

In fact, the php3/configure script could run that --build-ap-config APACI
configure command to make sure that ap_config.h will be available before
building PHP3.
