Configure help using CentOS 5.1

I have a new server running CentOS 5.1. I was surprised the stock
PHP excludes MySQL, PDO and a bunch of other popular modules. I
decided to download the source and compile a version with the modules
I need but I used the phpinfo() configure option and modified my
changes. What I don't get is stock configure (no changes) won't
compile on my box. For example in the configure is --with-apxs2=/usr/
sbin/apxs'. I don't even have that binary. How can this run without
that extension?

Next I tried yum list|grep php. I see several packages including php-
mysql.i386 and php-pdo.i386. So I installed them but phpinfo still
does not show MySql support.

So how do I get MySQL into PHP? If I compile it looks like need to
also build Apache. Any direction would be appreciated.

Thanks

apxs is used to compile the package. It is not required for running.
It should be part of your Apache installation; depending on what they
shipped you, you may have to install an Apache development package or
similar.

You don't need to build Apache, but you need the Apache module to build
PHP. And to add MySQL you use a compile-time flag - I think it's
--with-mysql=/path_to_mysql_development_files.
