I am trying to upgrade from php-4.02 and have this problem. Below are the specs on my system. It works
find with 4.02, but when I use the exact same procedure to build-4.04p1 the following happens.
./configure, make and make install on php complete without errors. httpsd starts and immediately dies
with no error messages and nothing has been found in any logs.
When I say it starts and dies I mean:

./httpsd start

gives an OK but

ps -aux|grep ht 

shows no httpd processes running no matter how fast I type but

./httpsd start;ps -aux|grep ht

shows 10 httpd processes, but will have dies before they can be tested again.                   

The only variable would seem to be the difference between 4.02 and 4.04p1. After a careful look at the
requirements and dependency I can't fine the cause. Unfotunately doesn't seem to make earlier
versions so I can't same how matters stand on 4.03 (Does anybody have this?).

The system is running Red Hat 6.2 with updates
linux kernel 2.2.17-14smp
Apache is RH secure server 3.1.2
glibc 2.1.3-22
The php configure command line use for both 4.02 and 4.04p1 is:
    ./configure --with-apxs --with-kerberos=/usr/kerberos/ --with-imap --with-mysql --with-ldap

1. delete config.cache
2. add --enable-debug into your configure line
3. after configure: 'make clean ; make ; make install'
4. then try generating gdb backtrace:

# gdb /path/to/httpsd
(gdb) run -X

And then (if) it crashes:
(gdb) bt

and copy/paste the output into this bug report using the
web interface.

After rebuilding with debugging support as you suggested, I got the following output:

This GDB was configured as "i386-redhat-linux"...
(no debugging symbols found)...
(gdb) run -X
Starting program: /usr/sbin/httpsd -X
Cannot access memory at address 0x40701af4

And this is the backtrace:

Also I discover that running httpsd directly (as opposed to the init.d script) does indeed reveal an
error message. I had ealier suspected my problems might be related to ssl support since that had changed in 4.04p1. I've tried building --with-openssl but this fails with the error OpenSSL must be 0.9.6 or greater. I got hold of a Mandrake rpm for openssl 0.9.6. I am running RH but the package appeared to install ok and

#openssl version 


OpenSSL 0.9.6

but no dice one the build. I will look at the configure file and see how it detects openssl.
[root@ssl php-4.0.4pl1]# /usr/sbin/httpsd
Syntax error on line 190 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpsd.conf:
Cannot load /etc/httpd/modules/ into server: /etc/httpd/modules/
undefined symbol: SSL_CTX_set_tmp_rsa_callback

One more thing. I got hold of php-4.03 (thanks Shane Chen). Same problem: undefined symbol: SSL_CTX_set_tmp_rsa_callback

added --imap-ssl to the configure. That got rid of undefined symbol: SSL_CTX_set_tmp_rsa_callback but not the orginal problem. It still dies.
New build (after rm config.cache , make clean) for a minimum php to debug
./configure --with-apxs --enable-debug

curiously configure is still including mysql support anyway??
but this build does seem to stick (httpsd keeps running)

 [2001-03-20 16:08 UTC] cjc at linuxbeach dot net
I am able to build a php-4.04p1 that works if I leave out imap support. Also imap support doesn't build properly  without  kerberos and imap-ssl support. 
 [2001-03-26 18:11 UTC]
Please try the latest CVS snapshot from 

And try adding --without-mysql into your configure line.

No feedback. And works for me just fine.
