Answer to myself and to thers having the same issue:

I  screwed up and down all the way but finally rememberd i used MM and
EAPI  variables  when i first started messing with Apache 1.3.2x and i
added  those lines at the very begining of my compile script (the ones
showed above) and it did work.

I'd  like  to  write  some kinda FAQ or HOW-TO on compiling Apache2 on
*NIX so people don't get confussed when it comes to SSL and such.

My  script  no  looks  like this and now is
SSL'ed :)

EAPI_MM="/usr/local/mm-1.3.0" SSL_BASE="/usr/local/ssl" \
./configure                     \
--prefix=/wwwroot               \
--enable-mods-shared=all        \
--enable-modules="deflate ssl"  \
--disable-ipv6                  \

It now works, just remember to have MM and SSL installed properly ...
