[Chameleon] sample help

I got the projection errors taken care of, I didn't do a make clean last
week before I redid the compile for mapserver with proj. I still have
the problem of broken images and I'm not sure where to look. Apache
doesn't report anything wrong, page info in fire fox shows MAP and NAV
field information under the Form tab. Nothing gets written to
/tmp/ms_tmp/. It's writable by the web user so that isn't the problem. A
php_info with the link to mapserver gives the canadian image and writes
a gif to ms_tmp. I'm not sure if I should concentrate my efforts on
mapserver or if it's a chameleon setting that's causing me grief. Any
experienced users have any input? The Redhat 9 and MapServer 4.0 install
guide says to copy ./sapi/cgi/php to /var/www/cgi-bin/php(version). I
don't know if this is my problem, but ./sapi/cgi/php does not exist on
my server. Any input? I don't want to give up on chameleon and I'm sure
it's probably some stupid error on my part, but this is getting pretty

I'd appreciate any help I can get right now.

Thank you,

Did you compile Mapserver against the PROJ library (USE_PROJ)?

Otherwise, try the FGS installer, http://www.maptools.org/fgs

I've been trying to get chameleon going on a linux box (FC4) for a few
days now without much luck.  I've had some errors and I've worked
through most of them but I think I'm stuck now and could use some help.
When running the sample, I get errors in my httpd error log - [MapServer
Error] loadProjection(): Projection support is not available.  I assume
this is more of a MapServer list question, but I am unable to search
those archives for some reason.  I followed the chameleon docs for
installation of the necessary software.  If I comment out the projection
info in the map file, I do not get any errors, but the browser just
shows a broken image. Right click, properties on the image shows the
location to be
if  Can someone offer me some guidance? I'd appreciate it.
