To be really efficient I tried to send the following message to "core-team"
which obviously failed. So, here is the same minor change proposal sent
to freebsd-questions. I hope some of the people who can take appropriate
action are on this list.

Subject: Support for default passive ftp mode in fetch

Hi!

The fact that fetch which is used by ports make when a distfile is not
already around has had no means to make it use passive ftp mode
by default has often caused me problems.
So, I finally decided to add this feature analogous to the plain ftp client
which uses the environment variable FTP_PASSIVE_MODE. Now my
modified fetch also obeys this environment variable. Find the diffs
attached. I hope everybody agrees this change would be a useful addition to
the base distribution.
