i found the problem and thought it wise to post the solution to the list
- i can imagine that more people may have problems with this in the
future, since it is a FreeBSD bug.
although i could ping the loopback address, the loopback isn't up
properly. according to http://www.freebsd.org/releases/3.3R/errata.html:
"edit /etc/rc.conf and search for where the network_interfaces variable
is set. In its value, change the word "auto" to "lo0" since the auto
keyword doesn't bring the loop-back device up properly, for reasons yet
to be adequately determined."
and that's it.
