Thank you for the response.
The problem was one of my ignorance of Webmin using its own server 
running in ssl mode. I had assumed it was apache.
I now understand that apache2.2.4 is compiled with ssl but does not use 
ssl unless it is set up with certificates and, I believe, OpenSSL. That 
said, I did reinstall the port and now everything seems to be working fine.
My only question now is: Why is httpd running with -DNOHTTPACCEPT ? How 
does this affect apache22's operation?
Thanks in adavance,
