GNU C 2.8.1
Initial sign is that Apache build fails to find include files for PHP during the
build process.  Hacking the Makefile to add the includes then produces a linking

Undefined                       first referenced
 symbol                             in file
php_module                          modules.o
ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to httpd

Comparing the Makefile in the src/modules/php4 directory with that in an Apache
1.3.6 build which included the same PHP 4.0.2 determined that the Apache config
seemed to have entirely ignore the contents of the libphp4.module file

Name: php4_module
        LIBS=" -R/usr/ucblib -R/opt/oracle/product/8.0.4/lib  -L/usr/ucblib -L/o
pt/oracle/product/8.0.4/lib -Lmodules/php4 -L../modules/php4 -L../../modules/php
4 -lmodphp4  -lgdbm -lpam  -ldl -lclntsh -lpsa -lcore4 -lnlsrtl3 -ldl -lgen -lso
cket -lnsl -lresolv -lresolv -lm -ldl -lcrypt -lnsl -lsocket  -lsocket $LIBS"
        CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -I/queues/php-4.0.2 -I/queues/php-4.0.2/main -I/queues/p
hp-4.0.2/main -I/queues/php-4.0.2/Zend -I/queues/php-4.0.2/Zend -I/queues/php-4.

which you can see lists the include files.  This information is nowhere to be
seen in the Makefile where as under 1.3.6 it is.
Use Apache 1.3.14 and PHP 4.0.2.
First config Apache using 
./configure  --prefix=/opt/apache \
--enable-module=info \
--enable-module=rewrite \
--enable-shared=rewrite \
--activate-module=src/modules/php4/libphp.a \
--enable-suexec \
--suexec-caller=httpd --suexec-docroot=/opt/apache/htdocs \
--suexec-logfile=/var/adm/suexec.log \
--suexec-userdir=www \
--suexec-uidmin=100 \
--suexec-gidmin=100 \

Then configure and build PHP 4

./configure --prefix=/opt/php \
  --with-oci8 \
  --with-ldap \
  --with-apache=../apache_1.3.14 \
  --enable-safe-mode \
  --with-exec-dir=/opt/apache/bin \

This requires a setting of ORACLE_HOME to /opt/oracle/product/8.0.4 and the
installation of the Sun LDAP libraries.  I patched the file ext/ldap.c in PHP
to use the Sun LDAP libraries using :-
*** ldap.c~     Thu Oct 19 12:58:12 2000
--- ldap.c      Thu Oct 19 13:00:05 2000

  static int _get_lderrno(LDAP *ldap)
- #if LDAP_API_VERSION > 2000
        int lderr;
        /* New versions of OpenLDAP do it this way */
        ldap_get_option(ldap, LDAP_OPT_ERROR_NUMBER, &lderr);
-       return lderr;
-       return ldap->ld_errno;
- #endif
- #else
        return ldap_get_lderrno(ldap,NULL,NULL);

        /* sizelimit */
        if(ldap_sizelimit > -1) {
- #if LDAP_API_VERSION < 2004
-               ldap->ld_sizelimit = ldap_sizelimit; 
- #else
                ldap_set_option(ldap, LDAP_OPT_SIZELIMIT, &ldap_sizelimit);
- #endif
        /* timelimit */
        if(ldap_timelimit > -1) {
- #if LDAP_API_VERSION < 2004
-               ldap->ld_timelimit = ldap_timelimit; 
- #else
                ldap_set_option(ldap, LDAP_OPT_TIMELIMIT, &ldap_timelimit);
- #endif
        /* deref */
        if(ldap_deref > -1) {
- #if LDAP_API_VERSION < 2004
-               ldap->ld_deref = ldap_deref; 
- #else
                ldap_set_option(ldap, LDAP_OPT_DEREF, &ldap_deref);
- #endif
        /* Run the actual search */

make install

Now back to Apache 1.3.14 and reconfigure as above.
Run the make on Apache and voila the problem surfaces.
Must be a change between 1.3.6 and 1.3.14 although I can't work out what.
I tried copying the Makefile from the 1.3.6 configured directory but this
doesn't completely solve the problem.
Curious mod_perl seems to work to configure properly despite having a similar
libperl.module file.
