Sorry I was thinking Intel Mac Pro. If you're on the G5 Mac Pro, I would try
'ppc64' rather than 'x86_64' (I'm not 100% sure if that's correct, but I
don't have a G5 around to test on).

No harm in trying - the worst that can happen is it ignores it or doesn't
build. To make 100% certain, after the 'make' but before the 'make install'
type the following:

file apache-2.0/

it should come back with (for a G5):

/usr/libexec/apache2/ (for architecture ppc64):	Mach-O 64-bit
bundle ppc64

Whereas I suspect on the one you're currently building you'd get:

/usr/libexec/apache2/ (for architecture ppc7400):	Mach-O bundle

Then try the 'make install' and do an apachectl configtest and see if you
get an error.

Good luck,
