Thanks for the advice. The way I got it to work was by actually making the package on the local box and it installed fine. In the past, when I tried it, I was not connected to the Internet and the build failed. I did not realize that my system must be connected as it needs to fetch some data from the Internet. Today, I tried it again with Internet connected (I figured that out today as I carefully read through the error messages), and it built fine and apparently got installed.
However, what I am seeing now is that I have index.php, but it is not automatically returned by Apache to browser when it goes to that url. And when I put index.php manually in the browser (lets say http://localhost/index.php), php is not parsed, and the file is just treated as a .html file. When I do make install, it says that php5 is already installed. I already installed a few php5-extensions, but I think this should be working without the extensions. I tried mod_php5, but since that component is installed by php5 itself, I get precisely the message that it cannot be installed because the location is the same, so I assume php5 actually did install Apache module too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
