installation of php 5 problems

I am trying to install php 5 on my system and I am having problems with the ./configure portion of the installation. when I run the configure script as

./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs2 --with-mysql=/usr/bin/mysql

I get this error:

configure: error: Cannot find MySQL header files under /usr/bin/mysql.
Note that the MySQL client library is not bundled anymore.

Can anyone tell me what's wrong?

By the way I am running suse 9.2 pro. MySQL 4.0.21 and trying to install PHP 5.0.3

I compiled the PHP source fine. When I went to install php I get an error that says "apxs:Error: Config file /etc/apache2/httpd2-prefork.conf not found."

This is how I configured my php install

./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs2 --with-mysql --enable-xml --enable-shared

The last time I installed php5 on fedora I didn't have this problem. Although all I used to configure php was --with-mysql and --with-apxs2

Has anyone else had this problem? If so, how did you fiix the problem? I checked for the httpd2-prefork.conf on my systtem and I don't have that configuration file. I have others, I don't know how to add those in the configuration if they need too be.
