httpd -V will show you where he thinks that the configuration file is,
if that's the not the correct one you can do two things:

call httpd -c /where/your/config/file/is

or recompile your httpd specifying the correct configuration directory
(option -D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE), note tha recompiling with just the
--prefix options doesn't change everything. Check also the
config.layout file.
