Basically the point is that TCP does congestion control.   Running 16
TCPs in parallel uses up more server resources and is rude to the other

What I do is run pkg_chk -f, more or less, and let it run overnight if
it needs to, and generally  distfiles do not take that long to fetch.

If your problem is that your downlink is saturated, accelerators won't
help.  If your downlink is ok but there is a lot of loss between you and
the ftp/http server, it might, but if there's a lot of loss, adding
traffic from multiple TCPs is antisocial to that congestion too.
