Not only that I tried downloading again twice, I had opened the file in vi
and it showed the "site has moved" etc html page.

Commenting out MASTER_SITES in Makefile made pkgsrc fetch it from netbsd
mirror I guess. So guess there is a default way to fetch distfiles.
Doesn't that become a fix or should one always put MASTER_SITES url? (The
question is more an attempt to understand pkgsrc structure on my part.)
