Apache 2.2.0 with SSL on AIX 5.3

I have been unable to get Apache 2.2.0 with SSL running on AIX 5.3.
This is from "httpd -V"...

Server version: Apache/2.2.0
Server built:   Mar 28 2006 11:28:41
Server's Module Magic Number: 20051115:0
Architecture:   32-bit
Server MPM:     Prefork
  threaded:     no
    forked:     yes (variable process count)
Server compiled with....
 -D APACHE_MPM_DIR="server/mpm/prefork"
 -D APR_HAVE_IPV6 (IPv4-mapped addresses enabled)
 -D HTTPD_ROOT="/usr/local/apache2"
 -D SUEXEC_BIN="/usr/local/apache2/bin/suexec"

 -D DEFAULT_LOCKFILE="logs/accept.lock"
 -D DEFAULT_ERRORLOG="logs/error_log"
 -D AP_TYPES_CONFIG_FILE="conf/mime.types"
 -D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE="conf/httpd.conf"

....I compiled with...

env CC=gcc CCC=g++ ./configure --enable-mods-shared=most
--enable-ssl=shared --with-ssl=/usr/local/ssl


gmake install

....to build and install. When I run "apachectl start" with debug
logging I get...

....which looks okay, but Apache seems to crash and never starts
listening. I only get the following in the logs directory...

access_log       error_log        ssl_request_log

....the only modifications I made to the configuration files is to
change the listening port to 8080, because I have an older Apache
listening on 80, and uncommenting the line that imports the SSL
configuration file in the extras directory. Also, I created a key and
self-signed certificate with OpenSSL before running.

Any ideas why Apache is crashing silently? Is there another way to try
to determine the cause of the crash?

I found the problem. Apparently the directive "Listen 80" doesn't work,
so I made it more specific to "Listen", of course where is my IP address and it worked like a charm.
