The ftp server used at the site mentioned above seems to have
problems with the NetBSD ftp client sending extended commands
(EPSV). Start an interactive ftp session and disable extended
commands with 'epsv4'. This should let you fetch the file.

  $ ftp
  ftp>  epsv4
  EPSV/EPRT on IPv4 off.
  ftp> get icu-2.6.tgz
  local: icu-2.6.tgz remote: icu-2.6.tgz
