Benchmarking localhost (be patient)...bind: Address family not supported by
protocol family (47)

Background:  I upgraded my Mac to Lion, and apache bench stopped working
giving me the errors:

Upgrage apr_socket_recv: Connection reset by peer (54)

When I copied it over to /usr/sbin/ab, it now gives me the error above
(address family not supported).

I really want to get this working, any guesses what it could be?
