  I've not made any change in the past few days!  Although from memory
 the BSD ports tree was running 2.5 until very recently.

  The error message is interesting, normally I'd expect something like
 "port already in use", or "permission denied" - that message about
 the address strikes me as odd.

  Do you the configuration variable 'binding_host' set to something?
 If so does that value make sense?  Normally this is empty which causes
 all interfaces to be bound to, but I know a lot of people use this
 to bind explicitly to only an internal address, etc.
