Synopsis: www/apache and www/apache2 cannot download source tarballs

1.) The "apache2" package in pkgsrc HEAD is already at version 2.0.58
whose source tarball is available on all the defined master sites.
2.) The "apache2" package in the pkgsrc-2006Q1 branch can still be
built without problems because the source tarball can (and will
automatically) be fetched from "ftp.netbsd.org" or one of its mirrors.
This can be sped up by setting "MASTER_SITE_OVERRIDE" to e.g.
Because the package works fine and has all the necessary security fixes
there is no critical reason to update it. The purpose of the pkgsrc
branches is not to provide the latest but stable and secure version
of 3rd party packages.
