Where is the location of your httpd.conf file? If you are not using  
the built-in Apache it's probably not under /private/etc/apache2/, are  
you sure you are changing the right conf file (for the version of  
Apache that is running) to point to your build of php?

What version of OS X are you using? Enough has changed between Tiger  
and Leopard that it would help to give you clearer instructions if we  
know this.

Also, just as an aside, why did you build your own Apache? Leopard  
ships with Apache2 and works great out of the box 99% of the time  
(unless you have specific needs). I think you may be making things  
harder than they have to be! (If you're using Tiger, I totally  
understand not wanting to use Apache 1.3 or whatever that ships with  
it... :) )
