"Exiting on signal 12" means that httpd tryies to use syscalls 
that your kernel doesn't support. I think that the removal of 
"options SYSYV*" is the cause of your problem.
Could you please tries those 2 tests to confirms this?
rebuild a custom kernel, named TEST, which is the same as your custom 
one, except you keep SYSVS* options.
Then boot on it, and test if httpd starts properly.
Rebuild apache when you run your custom kernel to see if configure 
script catch the lack of SYSVS support.
