    1. Why are you trying to compile apache from source? This is very uncommon for ubuntu...

    2. You sure you don't wanna use apache2?

    Yes, you can install apache2 on any linux distro.

    Also, on an ubuntu machine, you can install apache2 with:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install apache2
    This installs apache2 + any dependencies.
