What can cause these problems? How can I troubleshoot them?
I am very new to freeBSD, so part of my question is "where do I begin?". I have a copy of Complete freeBSD beside me but can't get the magical incantations right. Suggestions appreciated.

New to "Nix like" systems in general, or just new to FreeBSD?

Here are a few suggestions ... no "magic bullet" here, though:

First, check to see if the interface exists:

$ ifconfig lo0
lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384
        inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
        inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4
        inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000

So, we have a loopback interface (in this case on both IPv4
and IPv6).
bsd-box# ifconfig -a
rl0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        options=8<VLAN_MTU>
        inet6 fe80::2e0:4cff:fe08:e02a%rl0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
        inet 192.168.1.104 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
        ether 00:e0:4c:08:e0:2a
        media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
        status: active
plip0: flags=108810<POINTOPOINT,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST,NEEDSGIANT> mtu 1500
lo0: flags=8008<LOOPBACK,MULTICAST> mtu 16384

Hmm, is that all?  Unusual; I'd think the loopback _should_ be set
up correctly.

`ifconfig lo0 -inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0`  ??


If that fixes it, then we have to figure out *why* it's not being
doing automatically.  Problem during init/rc, most likely ... weird.


Running that command returns this:

ifconfig: -inet: bad value
