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 

Most common one I have is the citrix 'icaclient'.
