This refers to a syntax error in the run time configuration file, not
the compile time conf.

It appears that the cited path is not where the file actually resides.

Load up your favorite editor with httpd.conf and take a look at line
207.  You could comment the line to see if that makes it work, or you
could correct the path.  It seems that your installation does not comply
with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standards, so I won't even guess where
that might be. 

The advice is free, and worth every cent.
