I need to run a httpd server that can serve up PHP, SQL Lite, and SSL on a
little Soekris box (ie. a 486 with 64MB RAM and 32MB CF storage).

Can anyone recommend something?  

How small can Apache get?

AppWeb?

What about lighthttpd? 
http://www.lighttpd.net

Or the httpd that comes in the kernel?

tux?

Related, does anyone know of a tutorial or something that will help to
reduce Apache to only the things really needed for PHP, mySQL, SSL? Right
now, our Apache memory footprint is an astounding 120MB !!
