I am rather new to Linux but an old timer at software development.  I am
investigating alternate platforms for future development for my company.
Linux is at the top of the list.

I am trying to get a server setup with a db (PostgreSQL), web server
(Apache), and some sort of web scripting language (PHP).  I can not make
everything work together.  PHP4 won't work out-of-the-box with PostgreSQL
because PHP doesn't have support for PosgreSQL built in at compile time (why
not just build everything into when it was initially built?).

So I get the sources to PHP and try to build.  However, it wants the sources
(header files) for Apache.

At this point I don't want to go any further.  Eventually, I'll probably
need the sources for everything.

Is there an easy way to do this sort of stuff on Linux or is it better to
just buy off the shelf products that work?
