I'm having two problems on current (5.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.0-CURRENT #6:
Fri Jul 7 20:04:56 SAST 2000 for kernel, binaries Jul 13, libfetch
and fetch 14 Jul) with the ports.

One: fetch never stops! 
For example:

su-2.03# make
>> GnuPG-Interface-0.09.tar.gz doesn't seem to exist on this system.
>> Attempting to fetch from 

65755 bytes transferred in 591.1 seconds (111.24 Bps)
>> Attempting to fetch from ftp://ftp.cpan.org/CPAN/modules/by-module/GnuPG/.

65755 bytes transferred in 42.5 seconds (1.51 kBps)
>> Attempting to fetch from 

65755 bytes transferred in 18.4 seconds (3.50 kBps)
>> Attempting to fetch from 

Basically what happens it that for each master site listed in the Makefile a
fetch is done.


if I do a "make" in a port and then ^c to abort the fetch continues...
(I do this because in Africa overseas sites can be very slow - so I do
an archie on local sites to pull source from something closer...) Okay 
so I kill the fetch - it just moves to the next site listed - now 
for apache13 that is about 15 sites... I notice that 
 9059  p0  S      0:00.00 /bin/sh -ec (cd /usr/ports/distfiles/;  for file in
 9060  p0  S      0:00.01 /bin/sh -ec (cd /usr/ports/distfiles/;  for file in
runs for each make in a port directory.

My /etc/make.conf is:
NO_SENDMAIL=    true    # do not build sendmail and related programs

Can anyone suggest a fix or workaround. This does not occur on my 3.5-STABLE
and 4.0-STABLE boxes.
