This tells us two things ...
There is something already using port 80
It's not been started by apachectl

So what happens when you try 'http://localhost' in your browser?

On Windows this would be easy ... ISS is running so you have to kill
that first. On Mac that is not the case, but how did you install Apache?
On linux if you manually install via an install from it can
use a different setup so may not ACTUALLY be using /conf/ ... my
parallel setups of Apache2.2 and Apache 2.4 use the /etc/apache and
/opt/apache24 directories

But we need a 'Mac' expert to confirm that.
