You must have a problem with your config or a problem binding. In your log you 
have something like:
2009-10-19 11:20:47.573839 [CRIT] switch_loadable_module.c:871 Error Loading 
module /usr/local/freeswitch/mod/mod_sofia.so
**Module load routine returned an error**

There should be an ERR level message above that with the actual problem (ie. 
Couldn't bind! / Open of sofia.conf failed)
