Don't build it from source. Use packages. If you're using the distro php 5.4.16 then do this

yum install epel-release
yum install php-pecl-apcu.x86_64

If you're using a third party repo to get newer php then you should be able to find an apcu package from them instead.

Thank you!

This helped.

Actually realised a lot of setup guides are very generic and you need to do your own research depending on what distro is your environment.
It's educational though.
