I don't know why you want to use such a bogus ("Mozilla/5.0") user agent,
but it is the origin of the fault.
morr@'s change may rise new other faults, because it will work well with
x11/rxvt-unicode/Makefile r1.41, adding FTPUSERAGENT="NetBSD/ftp".
If other sites also has same problem (empty user-agent is not welcomed),
package using such site as MASTER_SITES will also fail to fetch,
because usually, FTPUSERAGENT environment variable is empty.
Adding such hack to affected packages is not smart.
My suggestion is "revert to r1.56".
For Tsutsui-san's situation,
* unset FTPUSERAGENT for the case using pkgsrc
* put followings to mk.conf (or set equivalent to environment variable)
