httpd: could not open document config file /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf

this is wrong to start with ..
i did rm -rf /usr/local/apache2
and rm -rf /etc/apache

i did a new install of apache2 with the following ./configuire options

i ran make and make install
i then configured made and make install php 4.3.9 setup my httpd.conf file and i get the error i first posted.. it shouldnt be looking there to begin with.. what can i do to fix this problem
it shouldnt be looking there.. i dont know what im doing wrong.. ive read endless pages of docs all night but to no avail.. nothing seems to work.. i even rm-rf all the old apache folders.. and reconfigured and make and make install.. it still looks in the old dirs how can i fix it or just remove it all and start over..
