Looks like my apt cache had been corrupted.  I removed the
file, and ran
	apt-get update

This command ended with the following message:
 Reading Package Lists... Error!
 E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room
 E: Error occured while processing xt-sdf2-dev (NewVersion1)
 E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/http.us.debian.org_debian_dists_unstable_main_binary-i386_Packages
 E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

I commented out the following line from sources.list
 deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free
removed pkgcache.bin once more, and did apt-get update.

Now apt seems to be working normally.
