Compile php after apt-getting it

I just installed apache+php+mysql on my Debian server using apt-get. However, I would like to use the Pspell functions of php. To enable pspell I need to compile php with pspell.

How do I compile php without ruining my old installation that I installed with apt-get?

In the replies on the pspell page, somebody says this:

apt-get install aspell libaspell15 libaspell-dev libpspell-dev

configure php:

./configure <your other options> --with-pspell=/usr

make & install
Will this work okay or will I have two php's running that will conflict with each other? I would like to 'upgrade' the old php, so keep all the settings etc.

You probably don't need to do this. Do either of these packages meet your needs?
php4-pspell - pspell module for php4
php5-pspell - pspell module for php5

It would be truly great if that would just work! I'm going to try it right after work, thanks.
