Using pkgsrc to install the suse100 metapkg takes longer and longer since most 
sites have removed the obsolete packages.

There are two reasonable changes that could be made.

Short-term:  move a download site that works to the front of the list
Long-term:  update the suse100 metapkg to load a newer version
