I added the -f /var/www/conf/httpd.conf line to my apachectl script and it 
appears to work now... sorta.  When I type apachectl, I receive no warning 
messages.  When I type it again, it tells me that the process is running, so 
HTTPD was launched successfully.  However, I can't access the site and when 
I type 'apachectl status' I get this error:

Looking up localhost.
Making HTTP connection to localhost.
Alert!: Unable to connect to remote host.

lynx: Can't access startfile http://localhost/server-status

Looking at my other OpenBSD box, which contains the original version (1.3) 
of apache with which it came, I see that the apachectl script does not 
contain any -f option.  So I'm assuming it knows automatically to look in 
/var/www/conf for the right config file.  Is this because of the way it was 
compiled?  If so, how do I do this with the new version of apache?

The command I used when compiling the source was:

./configure --enable-layout=OpenBSD --enable-modules="info speling"

What do I do now that httpd starts but doesn't display any pages even though 
they are in the right directory?
