That little "$" at the beginning implies that you are trying to run apache as a non-superuser. Only superusers (such as root) can run services on ports below 1024. Since webservers run on port 80, you'll need to run it as root.

If you still have problems even as root, please paste the entire contents of your /usr/local/etc/apache22/httpd.conf* (try to use the [ code ] brackets).

* Note that /usr/local/etc/apache22/httpd.conf may be different for you if you installed a different version of apache...
