 OK.  That's something.

 That wouldn't be likely to alter anything, the problem you have seems to
 be when it tries the data transfer, which is the first time a data connection
 is required - so making the data connection looks to be the problem.
   | The client here (I think) is "fetch" which is what pkgsrc dictates.
 OK, in that case, it isn't likely to be an EPSV problem, as I don't
 thing fetch (or libfetch) attempt EPSV for IPv4 connections, only for
 IPv6 (which is probably a sensible design choice, even though EPSV should
 work just fine for v4 as well).
   | I'm wondering if there are any settings like passive that can be put 
   | into the makefile that could help fetch succeed.
 fetch should use passive mode by default, but you should be able to
 make quite certain by putting
 in your environment.
