Unhappy Compile PHP with IMAP support


I have configured and installed Apache with PHP, mod_ssl and mod_perl (everything was compiled by hand).

My problem is that i can't compile PHP --with-imap support! The configure make and make install goes fine but I can't start apache! The error on error.log is this one:
Invalid command 'SSLEngine', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

It seems that apache (httpd.conf) do not recognize/can't start SSL, but i think that there's no problem with SSL because if i compile PHP without imap the server starts sucessfully but I have no imap support.

I've tried to compile: --with-imap=/usr --with-imap=shared,/usr but it didnt work..

The OS is Debian stable (Woody), and I have libc-client2001 and libc-client2001-dev installed byt apt-get.

My configure options to compile PHP are:
CFLAGS='-O2 -I/usr/local/src/openssl-0.9.7e -DEAPI' \
./configure \
--with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs \
--disable-debug \
--enable-sockets \
--enable-bcmath \
--enable-ftp \
--enable-calendar \
--enable-mailparse \
--enable-memory-limit \
--enable-inline-optimization \
--enable-magic-quotes \
--enable-mbstring \
--enable-mm=shared \
--enable-safe-mode \
--enable-track-vars \
--enable-trans-sid \
--enable-wddx=shared \
--enable-xml \
--with-ming \
--with-xmlrpc \
--with-mcrypt \
--with-dom \
--with-gd \
--with-png-dir=/usr/lib \
--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/lib \
--with-tiff-dir=/usr/lib \
--with-ttf-dir=/usr/lib \
--with-zlib-dir=/usr/lib \
--with-gettext \
--with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql \
--with-regex=system \
--with-xml \
--with-zlib-dir=/usr/lib \
--with-openssl \

Anyone can help compiling PHP with imap support?

I downloaded and compiled imap2004 ( and proceeded as it is said on

Unfrotunally that didn't work, and know, I dont even can compile PHP withou IMAP because when I'm starting apache, I always get this error:
Cannot load /usr/local/apache/libexec/ into server: /usr/local/apache/libexec/ undefined symbol: OPENSSL_add_all_algorithms_noconf

If I comment the PHP Load/AddModule Apache starts sucessfuly, but without PHP

Anyone knows what I'm doing wrong?
