On second thoughts, I was completely misreading your info.
Comes of trying to reply while also listening to a talk at ApacheCon.

OpenSSL is possibly implicated at the end of your dump.  But your
Apachectl -M doesn't list mod_ssl.  Possibly mod_php is loading it.
Indeed, if httpd and php were linked against *different versions* of
the same library (which could be OpenSSL or pcre or something else
entirely), that would likely segfault.

Finally, you shouldn't load both mod_cgi and mod_cgid.
Pick one or the other, but not both.
