Although in httpd.conf you supply the place of the PidFile, the script 
apachectl doesn't use that location at all. So, if you have supplied a
different PidFile location, apachectl complains that it can't find the
Simply change the location of the PidFile in httpd.conf and do 
"apachectl stop" and "apachectl restart" or "apachectl graceful".
Well, roughly. You could do a grep on httpd.conf in the apachectl script to 
catch the location of the PidFile. But then the problem is to find out where 
the httpd.conf will be located after installation. Shouldn't be that hard to 
change the script a little bit during installation to incorporate the location 
of httpd.conf.
