        The ftp server at seems to be broken (it understands and
        parses the EPRT command but is unable to make a (v4) data connection)

        I assume that is not just affecting me, as the distfile has not been
        copied to f.n.o which would usually happen - so I'm assuming the same
        ftgp problem is being observed from there.

        Whether this would happen with an old style client that doesn't attempt
        EPRT even when offered I have no idea.

        Attempt to fetch teh distfile for databases/freetds (the current 0.91
        version) - obviously this assumes you don't already have it.

        The patch below changes the master site to be where I have
        put a copy of this (one) distfile (obtained via http).   I do not
        suggest applying this to the CVS repository, as there's no guarantee
        that the file will last here forever (though I'd have to remember to
        remove it, so it probably will be around a long time!) and there's no
        mirror system in place, so the next version won't be appearing by magic.

        However, it would be suitable to pply on f.n.o to allow it to fetch
        a copy of the distfile that everyone else could just fall back to
        until the master site gets its ftp server fixed (or its firewall,
        or whatever has broken.)

        Or, the Makefile could be changed to use http instead of ftp, but
        please don't do that unless there's really no other choice.
