This site works perfectly fine for me.

In any case, you can manually download
and save it in the same folder, and then get rid of the lines that
access FTP and hope it works.

However, the MOTD explicitly states that there is a "Max Load Limit of
30" (whatever that means) so "If this limit is exceeded downloads will
be disallowed.".

You should try again later, or try installing MinGW manually (just
make sure you get everything specified in the .bat file so your thing
doesn't break).

The other possiblity is that sunsite.dk may be blocked for you from
upstream.  (Read: proxy server, firewall, filtering squid proxy, etc.)
 If that's the case, then I don't know how you'd circumvent that (or
if it's even a good idea).
