Perhaps the best way to install Apache on Kubuntu would be to use apt-get:
Code:

sudo apt-get install apache
I hope this helps

Hi,
i was having the same kind of problem while installing gcc compiler on xandros system, it needs a cc compiler to create a new gcc compiler (for generation of executables). ADD, I think you will need a ANCI C compiler as at "http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/install.html", they say under the requirement section:

"ANSI-C Compiler and Build System
Make sure you have an ANSI-C compiler installed. The GNU C compiler (GCC) from the Free Software Foundation (FSF) is recommended. If you don't have GCC then at least make sure your vendor's compiler is ANSI compliant. In addition, your PATH must contain basic build tools such as make. ".

Open /etc/apt/sources.list with your favourite text editor. You will need to start it using sudo. Find the lines refering to the "Universe" repositories, and remove the # sign at the front. Save and exit, and run
Code:

sudo apt-get update
and then try to apt-get apache again.

Also if you need to compile in the future I believe you need the binutils package but to make it real simple just install the build-essential package that should get you all the basics needed to compile.

Make sure you have gcc-c+ installed
