"which httpd" will only pick up httpd in your path.
If you install apache in /usr/local/apache, then 
it will likely not be in your PATH though may work fine.

$ I have really misunderstoods with the way the variable
$ environment is implmented or just use by the system ($PATH).
$ Yesterday, just after install (_few_severals_attempts_after)
$ httpd and apachectl worked fine after a fresh compile
$ and then after a reboot too in my /usr/local/apache/bin.
$ The way I understand the stuff is that the compile alters
$ programs located in the initial apache directory.
$ What kind of process could disabled the use of its ?!!
$ Ok I find one interessant thing. It doesn't work when
$ we situe ourself in the current

If you are in the directory that the httpd resides
in after building it, and if "." is in your path, then you
will be able to run 

 prompt> httpd -l

$, in fact no...
$ "." is in the directory [_is_that_different_that_*path*_?]

While doing the "make install" for apache, watch where
its installing into.  Likely it went to /usr/local/apache
if you were doing a static build, 

$ It reaveals another problem to my head...
$ Static build and non-static-build (DSO)...
$ Yes i guess it was the static way no "USE_DSO=1"

so then you would be
able to do 

  /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -l

$ Yes but not from the current directory...strange isn't it ?
$ Great thx,
$ bbsc,
