apt-get -- connecting to localhost ? (slink)

I've got this problem with two boxes I'm maintaining, both currently

When attempting to run any apt-* commands (eg:  apt-get update), I first
get a status line reading:

	[root@lists:karsten]$ apt-get update
	0% [Connecting to localhost] [Connecting to localhost]

Then ultimately:

	[root@lists:karsten]$ apt-get update
	Err http://http.us.debian.org stable/main Packages    
	  Could not create a socket - socket (93 Protocol not supported)

Package Info:

	Package: apt
	Status: install ok installed
	Priority: standard
	Section: base
	Installed-Size: 1388
	Maintainer: APT Development Team <deity@lists.debian.org>
	Version: 0.3.19

There are some quasi-related bug postings in the bug tracking system but
no solution I'm aware of.  Anyone?
