$_FILES empty

All I did was recompile my PHP 4.3.4 with the included GD and now my
$_FILES is perpetually empty. My php app is identical, I haven't
changed it at all since recompiling. I tried recompiling again
without GD to fix the problem, to go back to what I had before, but
$_FILES is always empty. I can't imagine that I'm doing something so
out of the ordinary, and yet I'm unable to google for someone with the
same problem. I am running Mandrake 9.2.

Here is how I ran configure:
[root@localhost php-4.3.4]# ./configure
--with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-mysql
--prefix=/usr/local/php434 --with-gd (also tried without gd again)

Here is what I'm using to test fix attempts:

if (empty($_FILES)) {
echo "\$_FILES is empty<br>\n"; //this prints
echo $_FILES['player1photo']['error']; //$_FILES is empty anyway.
echo '<form method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="file" name="player1photo"
<input type="submit"/></form>';

//echo phpinfo();

and here is the relevant portion of my php.ini (and yes, I've tried
channging umpload_tmp_dir to a dir that is 777. No good. (and why
should I have to anyway, it worked before)).
; File Uploads ;

; Whether to allow HTTP file uploads.
file_uploads = On

; Temporary directory for HTTP uploaded files (will use system default
if not
; specified).
;upload_tmp_dir =/tmp

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
upload_max_filesize = 2M
