pyApache install

The only error that I receive (when using apachectl start) is:

/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started
[root at linux apache_1.3.12]#

If I just try it as ./httpd, then I get "Segmentation Fault".  

I figured the defaults would at least allow me to compile correctly
(compile for make, and make install work fine - with no errors; it
just makes a faulty executable!?!) -- but I guess not.

Re: could gcc be too new?  Maybe I suppose.  But would RH distribute a
gcc that would be incompatible with compiling something as standard as
apache?  (6.2 I believe is the newest, I have RH6.1).  I'd imagine
more people would have problems doing simple things as I - if that
were the case.  Actually, I remember I had to copy some .h files into
my include directories (WAY back..).  Is there anyway to reinstall all
of the GCC files & includes?  (ie. where might I find the package to
do so?

Thanks for all your help,
