Bug#287012: apache: Should warn on nonsensical configuration

Package: apache
Version: 1.3.33-2
Severity: wishlist

It just took me 3 hours and a lots of cursing to find this:

	Listen 433
	<VirtualHost foo.localhost:443>

(Note the port numbers differ.)

Under such circumstances, apache really should warn about possible
misconfiguration.  I don't know whether this can actually be a valid
config setup.  If not, erring, not warning would be more appropriate.
