httpd: bad user name nobody (apache13-modssl port)

I recently upgrade apache13-modssl to version 1.3.34 and now when I
attempt to start the server, I get this message:

httpd: bad user name nobody

The user nobody exists and the server has been running fine for years.
 It's not chrooted.  This happens regardless of what I put in httpd.conf.

I googled and found lots of people with similar issues, but didn't
find a solution. 

Any ideas?
