What distribution are you using? Did you install php and apache from your distro's package manager? Or compiled from source? Have you tried to upgrade your system recently?
It looks very much like a glibc version mismatch.

If you posted the distro you are running on we could help you further. However i think your gcc installation is conflicting with whatever version you are installing. Please post your distro and what you have been asked by Uncle_Theodore
