10.4: Build Apache 2.2.3, php 5.1.15 and mysql 5.0.24

Why not install Darwin Ports, and then install Apache, PHP and MySQL using the detailed info found at the Darwin Ports wiki?
It seems much nicer (as it doesn't overwrite anything in the system, nor does it install anything in any system directory as it uses its own), plus you get the multitude of available ports to choose from... And upgrading couldn't be easier!

Make that MacPorts, not DarwinPorts

Apparently DarwinPorts was just this month renamed to MacPorts... I guess I've been out of the loop :)

I agree here. Just use MacPorts (DarwinPorts) or fink to handle all this in it's own little world.

The Darwin Ports install isn't MySQL 5.

Personally I think this is best
1. As the hint, use the package for MySQL
2. Use Darwin Ports / Mac Ports for Apache (special configs not so necessary)
3. Do a source install on PHP (you get an up-to-date version, more configure options, and the configure works well on OS X)
