I've thoroughly scoured the MAMP forum and haven't found an answer. Hoping someone here has the answer!
I took the easy route and bought Mamp Pro to set those up. It isn't hard to do manually... but I was too lazy and know zilch about setting up servers.

ytswy: I edit my live sites httpd.conf and .htaccess files using a text editor (Smultron) and don't have any problems. That may have been a previous Mac problem, but no longer.

Doesn't sound like it's your problem certainly, but just to point out to anyone who finds this thread when looking for .htaccess problems with Macs, that this issue is still alive and well with many Mac text editors - even Dreamweaver MX 2004 defaults to LF for line endings on the Mac. You can also get problems in php with functions such as fgetcsv() unless you configure php.ini to recognise LF as a line ending.
Sorry, off-topic for the thread, but I spent a *very* long time hunting this one down when it bit me, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone..
From the Apple Apple Developer Site [developer.apple.com]
Unix (LF), Mac (CR), or Windows (CRLF)
And yes, Mac OS X has multiple personalities when it comes to line endings. It's the first thing I check when things "don't show up." I try to standardize everything to CR-LF -- I can't find the reference but I seem to recall that's the HTTP standard, and it seems to work the most places.
