Hey Joshua,

Thanks for your response. 
Just replying to snips 'cause I figured it out.

In fact OpenBSD does have mod_mime and mod_negotiation compiled in, I've
gotten so used to them ripping out things for security reasons, that
somewhere along in my trying to get this to work I came to this false
conclusion. I had forgotten about httpd -l .   Takes writing out the email
to find the problem... :)

It seems my extra LoadModule lines had been messing things up.  I removed
them and things work as expected.  

I've even added a some UTF-8 auto-negotiation 
and Japanese pages with 
 AddCharset UTF-8 .ja 
 AddCharset UTF-8 .fr

Nice !

Thanks for the tip. I've symlinked page.html.html to page.html.en

Server is negotiating happily, and it's still too hot in NYC.
