If you didn't put the '--with-apache' in, PHP compiled itself as a CGI 
binary executable.  Yes, you'll need to recompile PHP over again.

You may want to take this opportunity to investigate Apache's DSO system 
(dynamic shared object).  You can recreate a new PHP 'module' for Apache 
without having to recompile Apache again in the future.  It's apparently 
a small performance hit, but I've not been able to notice any sizable 
decrease in performance on production servers we work with using the DSO 

Hope that helps.
