Ssl error in compiling custom php

Hi folks, I’m trying to compile a custom PHP (yet another person who needs SOAP), and have followed the wiki page (, but my compiling fails at the SSL/imap stuff. This is documented at, but I don’t really understand the remedy. I get error messages when doing either of the “install clean” or " make slx SSLTYPE=none" commands.
Is there a way that I can simply scratch all of the installation that’s been attempted, modify the script to " --without-openssl \ --without-imap-ssl" or something, and start over? Obviously I don’t really understand this stuff, just need the SOAP. Much thanks in advance.
