Log Message:
pkg/34695: Static list of package master sites may (and often will)
lead to overloads of very first distribution site. Moreover, if first
site in the list is not available (often seen for sourceforge mirrors)
you have to wait for timeout each time. To distribute load on master
distribution sites and to make second problem not so annoying randomly
intermix list of MASTER_SITES with MASTER_SORT_RANDOM feature. Any of
MASTER_SORT and MASTER_SORT_REGEX can be applied later.

The feature is turned ON by default and is disabled for PKG_DEVELOPERs
