	Thank you for your prodding in the right direction. It was fricking cups that 
was the problem and the work around was to stop cups and start apache and 
restart cups:

[04:42 nirvana:/home/david] # lsof -i tcp:443
cupsd   1896 root    8u  IPv4   7293      0t0  TCP *:https (LISTEN)
cupsd   1896 root    9u  IPv6   7294      0t0  TCP *:https (LISTEN)
[04:45 nirvana:/home/david] # rccups stop
/etc/rc.d/functions: line 303: .: /etc/rc.d/functions.d/functions.d: is a directory
:: Stopping CUPS Daemon 
[04:45 nirvana:/home/david] # lsof -i tcp:443
[04:45 nirvana:/home/david] # rchttpd start
/etc/rc.d/functions: line 303: .: /etc/rc.d/functions.d/functions.d: is a directory
:: Starting Apache Web Server 
[04:45 nirvana:/home/david] # rccups start
/etc/rc.d/functions: line 303: .: /etc/rc.d/functions.d/functions.d: is a directory
:: Starting CUPS Daemon 

	Now how do I fix this in rc.conf to make sure cups doesn't screw me over again? 
Take http out of the background?

	I've booted this box 15 times or so in the past 1.5 years and this has never 
been a problem until the updates tonight. What changed? How many others are 
going to get caught?
