Hm. It really should be saying something more than that on startup;
there should be a message right before that about *why* it couldn't
parse or validate the ports.
I just tried the ORPort combination you listed there, and it seemed to
work out okay for me. It might be easier to diagnose if you could
upload your entire torrc, and the entire output of starting Tor up to
the point where it says "failed to parse/validate config:"
