Right, you don't need apache.  But one of the post-install scripts references 
apache, and you see the innocuous permission denied error on systems where 
httpd is missing.
> nostart="yes"

This line ensures that the startup sequence below it is never run during 
setup.  You must start webmin via the rc.d script after enabling webmin in 
/etc/rc.conf.  From pkg-install:

        Since 1.150_2, to run webmin from
        startup, add webmin_enable="YES"
        in your /etc/rc.conf.
