Or set FAILOVER_FETCH in /etc/mk.conf or the environment. While this
won't work if you've already downloaded the file, if you sit behind
some weird firewalls like me, this can be quite useful - it calculates
the checksum when the file is downloaded, and, if a mismatch occurs,
tries to fetch the file from the next site in the list.

Set ACCEPTABLE_LICENCES in /etc/mk.conf to include shareware.
"ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES" is an alias for this. It just depends where you
live. This will also bite you on xephem with "no-commercial-use" type
