I've tried PASSIVE_FETCH=0 in mk.conf, and setting the environment variable
through 'setenv FTPMODE active' and 'make FTPMODE=active update'.  Nothing
seems to work; ftp will always try passive and fail (against this stupid,
broken firewall).

Manual, active sessions work fine.

How do I force active connections in pkgsrc?

Thanks v.v. much
