This is off-topic but I'll answer it.

  ./configure --with-mysql=[dir]

Normally even that is not necessary if you already have mysql installed.
The configure script should auto-detect most things on your system.  Since
you wasn't specific as to which Linux distribution you are using, it is
difficult to be more specific than this. See:


Sounds like you will have to install mysql too.  Note you will need the
mysql client libs. PHP 4.1.2 is pretty old. Compiling PHP Apache with all
the right stuff is not hard, but  it can be if you don't know what you
are doing.
