I also had this problem on two different computers, but I eventually got PHP, MySQL and Apache to all work on an iMac and a G4 PowerMac.

The installations seems somewhat nit-picky in which order some of the programs are installed. I think this is what worked for me.

Install MySQL.
Install Apache.
Install PHP, using the ./configure, make, and make install options.

If PHP is still having problems, saying that the shared object file is unreadable (that would be the .so file), try reinstalling PHP again. I found I had to install PHP twice before it worked. But now that it does work, I'm very happy! Just remember to turn MySQL on before trying to connect PHP to it.
