Default apt-get custom configuration help?

I seem to be getting along fine with linux. I have installed it over and over and configured with moderate success a web server, ftp server, mail, mysql etc. One thing is bugging me and I bet someone can help me with this probably super simple question...

I am using ubuntu and Debian flavors of Linux. To install packages using the package manager I use apt-get. Alternatively I have installed from source compiling it and building etc. What I am trying to figure out is, while using apt-get, is there any way to customize the configure settings that get passed to the configure script?

Say for instance apt-get installs PHP with no PFPRO support compiled with it, but I need to support that. There has to be a way to add to the apt-get installation some confugration settings prior to it installing. I would want to add --with-pfpro in this instance. Any help or link to directions or tutorials that might help me accomplish what I am asking would be great. I am sure this will help me drastically with my entire linux life when I figure this out.

Thanks in advance!

No, this doesn't work. The packages come compiled, so adding options doesn't help. You either have to find the appropriate package for your needs (try
Code:
apt-cache search search_string
), or compile from the sources (or build your own .deb packages - this tutorial might be interesting: http://www.howtoforge.com/howto_linu...b_checkinstall ).
