This sounds familiar. Below is Owen Boyle's response to
my question 2 days ago, thereby saving him the trouble.

This type of problem arises when you compile an application with
LD_LIBRARY_PATH set to allow the compiler to find the libraries, but
then try to run the binary from a shell where LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set
differently (or not set at all).

Check what LD_LIBRARY_PATH was set when you compiled (you did
cut'n'paste all your commands into a file for later reference, didn't
you?) and set it the same in the shell you start apache from.

If you don't want to use LD_LIBRARY_PATH (some people think it is evil:, then set LDFLAGS before
compiling. This will build the paths into the binary so apache will
always be able to find its libs. Of course, if you later move the libs,
apache will be lost again. Example from my last compile:

# This avoids LD_LIBRARY_PATH by building in the paths so they are used 
# at runtime.
setenv LDFLAGS "-R/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib:${INSTALL_PREFIX}/lib"
