compiling apache2 with SSL

I'm using Fedora and the rpm version of httpd is not working with ColdFusion, so I want to compile my own. I got ColdFusion working great in it, but now I can't get SSL working.

It seems so basic, the rpm version will use the install-supplied server.crt and server.key and prompt you to install the key, but the compiled version just refuses the connection.

I've debugged enough to find that is loading and using my ssl.conf, so why isn't it working right out of the box? I used my verisign(ed) certs and they don't work either, whereas they do with the rpm version.

Anyone out there gotten SSL to work with compiled apache2?

I compiled with:
#./configure --enable-mods-shared=all --enable-ssl --enable-proxy --enable-suexec --with-suexec-caller=nobody

Thanks guys

Ok, I guess I posted too soon. Here's the fix I used, for my and y'all's future use:

I copy and pasted the ssl.conf file from the rpm version
Commented out the include mod_ssl line because I've already loaded it
Commented out SSLCryptoDevice line because it doesn't exist in the compiled version
changed the cgi-bin directory, not that I use it, but whatever.

Boom. Works. Didn't all week when I was trying it at work, but I think the compile string I'm using this weekend is different from the one I tried at work.
