It looks well done. Why error_log is never shown in the logs dir but it is clearly defined
in the /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf. Thanks to Owen by giving me a very useful command
"truss /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start" It help me get the debug output. Please help
me correct the problem by reading the attached debug output. thanks again.

I don't really see anything in the truss file. Try the apachectl script
with shell tracing on.

/bin/sh -vx apachectl start
