[RCU] 500 Internal Server Error - Can't figure out why

Hey list,

First, my setup:
FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE AMD64
Apache/2.2.22
PHP 5.3.10 with Suhosin-Patch
roundcube-0.7.1,1
postgresql-server-9.1.3

I installed roundcube from the FreeBSD ports. I ran the install script, went through the configuration, saved my configuration files to the proper locations.
It ran the test page, and everything worked fine. I tried sending a test mail, testing the connection to my database (postgresql) and imap server (dovecot). Everything worked perfectly.
Then when I finished and tried to access the main roundcube directory, apache is giving me a 500 error. I have found no error logs anywhere. Not in roundcube's logs/ dir, not in apache's error log (even with LogLevel at debug), and not in my php error log.

I've browsed through the Wiki about the issue, it brought up the .htaccess files. I have 'AllowOverride None' on the entire filesystem, so apache should be completely ignoring the .htaccess files. It shouldn't even be stat()'ing them. I read each of the .htaccess files in the various dirs within roundcube and I put them in my apache config file. I prefer everything to be in there as opposed to using .htaccess. I have the applicable section of my apache file pasted below. In addition to that, I put some of the main settings into my main apache config, the ETags, DEFLATE, DefaultCharset, and those other settings.

If anyone has any suggestions on where to start with this, I'd appreciate it. It's driving me nuts.

Thank you!
