Same problem here. I ran a couple of traceroutes and everything is fine
right up to gig8-1.snr1.CS.Berkeley.EDU (188.8.131.52), after which I
get a No route to host too. Tracing gimp.org also got me to
gig8-1.snr1.CS.Berkeley.EDU, but that one does work, the box behind it
is graft.XCF.Berkeley.EDU (184.108.40.206). Apparently someone at
Berkeley messed up the router config and/or the freetype.gimp.org
webserver and/or the DNS entries.
(that last one sounds plausible, freetype.gimp.org is 220.127.116.11
while gimp.org is 18.104.22.168. I don't see why there would be two
different boxes, it could be a typo).
At any rate, it's not your connection that's at fault here.
