I downloaded the latest snapshot i.e php4-STABLE-200211220430 today and
compliled using the options  
./configure --with-mysql --with-gd=/usr/local
--with-png-dir=/downloads/libpng-1.2.5
--with-zlib-dir=/downloads/zlib-1.1.4  
--with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs
--with-jpeg-dir=/downloads/jpeg-6b --with-mail --enable-track-vars
but still was getting the errors 
ext/mysql/libmysql/my_tempnam.lo: In function `my_tempnam':
/downloads/php4-STABLE-
200211220430/ext/mysql/libmysql/my_tempnam.c:103:
the use of `tempnam' is dangerous, better use `mkstemp'
then I went to www.mysql.com  and downloaded their latest binary 
mysql-3.23.53a-pc-linux-gnu-i686.tar.gz and installed it into
/usr/local/mysql
and changed the configure options to 
./configure --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-gd=/usr/local
--with-png-dir=/downloads/libpng-1.2.5
--with-zlib-dir=/downloads/zlib-1.1.4  
--with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs
--with-jpeg-dir=/downloads/jpeg-6b --with-mail --enable-track-vars
note:- --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql
and it compiled perfect
