I had checked that out earlier. That's the reason I was so confused. I 
really have no idea what's going on and i haven't found anything in the 
errata/etc that says anything about Apache issues. I also tried using 
normal apache 1.3, as well as apachessl. both do the same thing. They 
configure fine but refuse to launch.

arcadia# apachectl configtest
Syntax OK
