The problem seems to have been that tcp congestion notification 
(net.ipv4.tcp_ecn) had been turned on, which doesn't work and play 
well with my internet connection. Turning it off got things working 
again.

My guess (and it's only a guess) is that /etc/sysctl.conf was tweaked 
when I emerged sys-apps/baselayout back on June 10. When I rebooted 
the machine yesterday morning, it got a new ECN setting, which hosed 
things.

Well, that blew a few hours of my time. Feh. :-)
