You have to manually go to each directory and run "make fetch-list"
and the resulting shell script. My little tool does this automatically,
all you have to do is define the packages you want and the distfiles
will be fetched with a single command.

Call me lazy but I don't want to do all these manually :-)

Comments and fixes are welcome...
