Apache 2 - am I doing it wrong?

I have apache 2 via MacPorts running.

First issue, reloading I use apachectl. Often times I forget to cd to  
the macports area and enable Apples distro. Is chmod -x apachectl  
sufficient to solve that?

I can move, rename, symblink, or alias, but wanted opinions on the  
suggested way.

After a apachectl graceful, which I'm doing often as I secure and tune  
phi.ini, looking at output from ps I see all httpd processes. Each has  
the graceful command in the ps output

There are usually 10-15 threads running like this. I am used to just  
seeing httpd listed, sans the graceful line.

Is apachectl the incorrect way to start, stop, or allow a friendly  
reload where connections can finish?

I've seen another command used to starts and stop, httpd I believe, is  
that the preferred method? What's the difference?

Iphone says hello.
