I did install apache by hand from tarball.
I discovered that I did not supply the full path to perl interpreter 
When I fixed that problem the php compile went through make but
failed on make install because the file was not created.
It is nowhere on the system, as reported by the command line
find / -name -print. I know this is not the php list.
I was directed to the php install list and all I have been getting
from them are messages my ISP is finding viruses in.  I have
done this successfully on two other machines running FBSD 6.0
This machine is running v6.2. I have been bypassing ports for
technical reasons relating to my network setup.
I have tried this with Apache 1.3.37 and php 5.2.1 twice.
I went to php 5.1.2 and tried it. Same thing. Now I am
trying it with Apache 1.3.34. Same thing. It has to be some
thing with make or autoconf on this machine. I will go back
and do ./configure on php and read the output to see if
there is a clue there.
This is of great concern because this is supposed to be a
production server with ssl, gd, mcrypt, mysql  and all that. If I cannot
get php to work with Apache it is in vain.
Thanks for the reply.
