Apologies; tcp gives a null result also. I'm pretty sure nothing but
httpd is
listening there.

The "SSLEngine on" in was an error on my part, in
tidying up the sample I accidentally
pasted a duplicate in the wrong place - it's _not_ in the httpd.conf

However the key information really is missing. So it looks like this
may be a
problem in the fedora httpd configuration tool, because the key
information definitely is
there in the virtual host configuration in the gui, it's just not
getting saved for some reason.
Probably, I have a syntax error somewhere (but even so, the tool
shouldn't fail it silently).
I think this takes it out of modssl, so my next step will be to check
the fedora mailing lists,
and report it as a bug if it hasn't been already. Then I guess I'll
have to take the plunge,
and edit the httpd.conf manually.
