Ok, so I believe I've fixed my -DEAPI error, but I still can't get
apache to start.  

    apachectl start
    httpd -X
do not start the deamon.

Here is the output from "apachectl start":
    [doorman:/usr/sbin] > sudo ./apachectl start
    /usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started

"httpd -X" on the other hand gives me absolutely no output.

Every time I run either of those commands, my error_log file has the
following appended:
    /usr/libexec/ld.so: Undefined symbol "_pthread_mutex_init" called
    from httpd:/usr/lib/apache/modules/mod_python.so at 0x402e0148

I would love to run an "strace" but I don't think it's installed, and my
not-so-through attempts to find it have resulted in failure so far.

As always, thank you all for even reading this.  And you all definitely
receive an enormous "thank you" for any help you can give.

Here's my system information:
  OS: OpenBSD 3.1
  Python: I have both 2.2 and 2.1 .  I don't know why, but the OpenBSD
          ports tree decided I should have both.
  Apache: I'm running the out-of-the-box 1.3 that comes with OpenBSD
