First, 4.6 is depreciated, since you are starting on a clean install, I
suggest you start with a current release such as 4.11 or 5.3. For ease
of future upgrade, I suggest 5.3. Get the first iso, no need for the rest.
Second, you might find yourself installing a few times before you get it
right. Not that you get it wrong at first, but your needs might need to
clear up. A full install is not recommended, you will get a system that
requires more work to update. A minimal is better, since you can always
add stuff as you need. Dependencies are resolved automatically if you
use the ports.
For a workstation I choose X-Developer, for a server, no X.

It sounds like you are not installing from ports, this explains why
apache fails to compile. You should get the ports tree in /usr/ports, then
# cd /usr/ports/www/apache13
# make install
if you get an error, retry and you can catch all the output using script:
# script apache_build.log
see if you can locate the problem if not copy the relevant part of the
output when asking here.
