Sounds like a bug. All fetch restriction packages I encounter want it in your distfiles folder. (Wherever you configured it to be) I haven't really read the text on these myself lately, so not sure if other packages have the same, but I didn't notice any path other than my distfiles dir. Most common one I have is the citrix 'icaclient'. -- Joost -- Sent from my Android device with K-9 Mail. Please excuse my brevity.
