fetch time out

It seemed to me that the mirror servers are not uptodate or that
some filenames have changed in the meantime, because fetching data
from ftp-servers worked a few times. But in nearly all cases I had to copy the files manually in
/usr/ports/distfiles as "make install" finally suggested.

I had similar problems and it took me a while to figure it out. The FTPs that worked for me were the ones I manually started, not the ones done by the ports makefiles. I'm accessing through a firewall and it seems that when ftp is used there it doesn't automagically try to use passive mode. I needed to add FTP_PASSIVE_MODE=YES to my environment variables. I don't remember exactly where it went though.
