I have been trying to update apache and php to accept mysql.
I have to install the sources and recompile with the
switches for mysql.

rpm doesn't seem to update the installed database once
source has been installed. As a result I'm getting a failure
on php because rpm can't determine that a srpm package has
been installed.

eg:
[root@dns SRPMS]# rpm --version
RPM version 3.0.3
[root@dns SRPMS]# rpm -ivh  apache-1.3.9-4.src.rpm
apache
##################################################
[root@dns SRPMS]# rpm -ivh  apache-1.3.9-4.src.rpm
apache
##################################################
[root@dns SRPMS]# rpm -ivh  apache-1.3.9-4.src.rpm
apache
##################################################
[root@dns SRPMS]# rpm -q  apache-1.3.9-4.src.rpm
package apache-1.3.9-4.src.rpm is not installed
[root@dns SRPMS]#

Source rpm's are never installed in the rpm database. You probably
are failing to build because of a build dependency on a binary
rpm.
