Hi all,

At some point after my original installation of v.7-BETA3 in late
November and a subsquent upgrade to BETA4 with Colin Percival's
freebsd-update, installing packages remotely with pkg_add on my system
broke. For example:

$ sudo pkg_add -vr rtorrent
scheme:   [ftp]
user:     []
password: []
host:     [ftp.freebsd.org]
port:     [0]
document: [/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7-current/Latest/rtorrent.tbz]
---> ftp.freebsd.org:21
looking up ftp.freebsd.org
connecting to ftp.freebsd.org:21

>>> RETR rtorrent.tbz
<<< 550 Cannot connect to - Unknown error: 0.
Error: FTP Unable to get
File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
pkg_add: unable to fetch
by URL
pkg_add: 1 package addition(s) failed

Now, I *know* the package and host are online; I can copy and paste
the URL from the screen to grab it with wget:


This works.

What could be going wrong with add_pkg here?

As I indicate above, I am currently at 7.0-BETA4
