That should solve the permission issue in binding to a prviledged port.

Do "netstat -apn |grep 443" and see if something else is already 
listening there. You might have installed apache-ssl or some such, and 
it started itself.

IMHO, it's better to run tor unprivileged (and chrooted if you're really 
paraniod), and use xinetd or ipfw to forward the packets from 80/443 to 
something else (the wiki provides instructions on how to do this).
