I did mine the hard way. I grabbed that file and put into /tmp. I then
gunzipped un-tarred and configured and made. It worked, but surely the
distfiles methods is easiest.

Have you resolved the truncated downloads? I would make sure that is not
an issue prior to installing from the gz. You sure don't want the
further aggravation of some file broken while installing.
