	The distfile wanted by the mailman pkg does not exist anywhere.
	Initially I thought this might be one of those "import the
	package only to find that the maintainers have deleted the
	distfile and replaced it with a newer one the next day" events
	that happen every now and then (especially as there have been
	reports of a security problem in mailman recently).

	But here, that doesn't seem to be the case.   This looks to be
	the initial version of mailman, its DISTNAME in the Makefile
		DISTNAME=	mailman-2.0.13
	yet the distinfo file (imported at the same time) has information
	for mailman-2.0.12

	The 2.0.12 files exist (and all previous versions), I see no
	sign of 2.0.13 anywhere.
	By inspection.   Or attempt to make (or just "make fetch") the
	mailman package.
	Assuming that there is no 2.0.13 anywhere yet, then s/13/12/
	in the DISTNAME in Makefile.

	Also, it would be nice if when the copyright doesn't prohibit
	it, if the distfiles could be fetched to before
	packages are imported/upgrqaded.   Then we'd much more rarely
	get the "distfile removed by maintainer" problem, as the copy
	at would be there, whatever the maintainers do...
