	A recent build of the bash2 package failed to connect to the
	primary site and attempted to fetch

	instead.  However, the GNU ftp site has been reorganized, with
	individual subdirectories for each software package, so the
	correct location is now

	NB: this reorganization very likely has implications
	for every GNU package in the tree--I haven't checked.

	cd /usr/pkgsrc/shells/bash2; make

	Trivial for this package alone, but given that all GNU packages
	may be affected, I imagine that a general solution involving
	automatically inserting the subdirectory name when fetching from might be the most appropriate fix.
