Compiled Apache2 from source...

I compiled Apache2 from source and redirected rc.httpd to the correct apachectl file. However, when I try to start the service, it gives me an error about not being able to find /usr/conf/httpd.conf. How do I redirect it to /usr/apache2/conf? I don't even know which file is looking for it. Thanks.

Change start script or specify as option.

apachectl -f /usr/apache2/conf/httpd.conf
will probably work for you.

I would check your rc script again to make sure its linked to the correct apachectl script.
