        parallel/openpbs is one of those packages where fetching
        the distfile requires running through hoops at the
        developers website.

        The Makefile for this package (along with pkgsrc) used
        to handle that correctly - issuing a message indicating
        that the distfile needs to be manually fetched, and
        give some hints how to do that.

        That is no longer working - instead the package
        attempts to fetch the file from (the
        MASTER_SITE is commented out of the Makefile, so it
        cannot try there.) doesn't have the
        distfile (and wouldn't be permitted to distribute it
        either, I assume.)

        # make sure the distfile doesn't exist
        mv ..../distfiles/OpenPBS_2_3_16.tar.gz /somewhere/safe
        cd .../parallel/openpbs
        make fetch              (or make checksum)

        Watch what happens.   Compare with what happens in
        devel/gtl or one of the sun java packages (lang/sun-*)
        (or others).

        I suspect that the problem might be that openpbs has no
        FETCH_MESSAGE defined in its Makefile - it does have
        INTERACTIVE_STAGE set to fetch, but it seems like that
        isn't enough to prevent the automatic fetch attempt.

        Whether this is a bug in the openpbs Makefile, or in
        pkgsrc's fetch processing I will leave for someone else
        to decide.
