How did you install apache?  It sounds like you downloaded some random
binary off the internet, rather than simply apt-get installing it...

There should be no need for downloading the Apache sources and
building it from source - just use the pre-built apache from Debian..

It's debian - it's all pre-built. If you need a compiler, apt-get
install gcc. But really: sounds like you've got a really weird apache

Hope this helps
