Getting the httpd daemon running

I've hit an uncomfortable problem. httpd won't start up from my inetd.conf.
Here is /etc/services:

www 80/tcp http # WorldWideWeb server

and here is inetd.conf:

# WorldWideWeb service: add -l logfile if logging needed
www stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/etc/httpd httpd -l /tlh/br
owse/WWW/httpd.log -v

(that's all one line starting www and ending -v). And here's the result:

curia# kill -HUP 136
curia# Dec 11 10:45:02 curia inetd[136]: www/tcp: unknown service

I'm clearly doing something silly but I cannot for the life of me see *what*.
