Same promblem as that reported for time/sunbird in PR pkg/34606
The include files (Makefile fragments) for thunderbird
(and sunbird, and perhaps more of the mozilla derived set
of packages) are in a mess, causing incorrect versions to
of distfiles to attempt to be fetched from incorrect paths.
Just try "make fetch" - een if you have the distfile, the
current Makefiles are so coonfused about what thet need, they're
going to attempt to fetch again anyway (which of course means that
manually fetching the distfile is not a workaround for this
problem - manually renaming it to the wrong name might work, but
who know what package name would get installed).
Unscramble the Makefiles... Avoid the tendency to save a
few minutes work by making everything use the same names.
These thins are not all at the same version, and they don't
all get fetched from the same opath on the master site!
