Keep your mktime() as it is, that's correct. Then use something like
this to calculate the age:

$age = date('Y',$now) - date('Y',$dob) -
((date('z',$now)>=date('z',$dob)) ? 0 : 1);

where $dob and $now are the appropriate unix timestamps that you've
already got calculated with mktime() and time().
