Show us your httpd.conf?

It's probably something as simple as uncommenting everything to do with SSL
in httpd.conf, if compiled with SSL, Apache likes to automagically setup a
virtual host using SSL.

There should also be a command line argument to apachectl or httpd that can
be set with apache_flags="--disable-ssl" (or something similar) so the RC
scripts know how to load Apache. Read through
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache-script, you'll get some information through that.
