Error compiling PHP

I am using apachetoolbox and I ran through the setup and when it runs it fails to compile PHP.

The error message I get in the log file is

' /tmp/apachetemp/Apachetoolbox-1.5.72/src/php-4.3.9/ext/mysql/php_mysql.c:1202: undefined reference to `mysql_drop_db'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [sapi/cli/php] Error 1'

The error I get in the command line is

'Enter the name if the text editor you would like to
use to edit the PHP configureation script [pico]:
No editor specified, defaulting to pico.
Please edit the configuration script for PHP...
Press Enter to continue
./ line 94: pico: command not found
[+] Script edited , continuing with configuration...
Press Enter to continue
[+] PHP: Configuring... [DONE]
[+] PHP: Compiling...[-] *****php-compile.log FAILED!******

Check in "/tmp/apachetemp/Apachetoolbox-1.5.72/logs/php-compile.log" for errors.'

Thanks for any help.

Newbie question

Ok. I am pretty sure not having the software could very well be the problem. After taking a little more time and reading the apachetoolbox output i get this

From apachetoolbox
Choice [?] go
[+] Testing for Log directory... [DONE]
[+] Testing for src directory... [DONE]
--------------------- Scanning for RPM's ----------------------------
Testing for PHP RPM... found! Please remove the rpm. EG: rpm -e php-4.3.8-2.1

Testing for Apache Devel RPM... not found.
Testing for Mod_Perl RPM... found! Please remove the rpm. EG: rpm -e mod_perl-1 .99_12-2.1
Testing for Mod_Perl Devel RPM... not found.
[+] ** If your going to use an RPM package (like openssl) you better have the D EVEL rpm installed as well! **
RPMs that will probably cause problems where found!
Do you wish to continue anyway? (be careful) [y/n]


I am pretty sure you can't compile programs you don't have

SO my question is two fold
1) Where would I find this fill Testing for PHP RPM... found! Please remove the rpm. EG: rpm -e php-4.3.8-2.1
maybe '/usr/lib' I am looking
2)Once I download the programs need what directory should I put them in?

thanks for any help
