If all you want is to add mysql support in php then its just a matter of 
installation relevant RPM(s) which for RH7.2 is php-mysql-4.0.6-7.i386.rpm. 

I would advise against mixing RPM and source installs for Apache-PHP. My own 
preference is to install AMP (Apache, MySQL, PHP) from source. Search google 
for 'lamp php apache' to find the LAMP guide which shows you how to install 
all 3 from source. DevShed also has a nice guide called "The Soothingly 
Seamless Setup of Apache, SSL, MySQL ,and PHP".
