Another thought... when you say "no errors" you mean "no errors to the
screen", right? But what's in the error log?

No big surprise... apachectl is just a shell script that forks httpd. If
httpd fails, apachectl can still exit normally...

Should have mentioned that we had tried starting 
httpd directly and got same results.
Also there is nothing in the error log.
We had tried running with trace and last statement seem
to be fork(). There was a pid associated with fork().
Then next statement was exit(0).
