I've just experienced something interesting while trying to
install mutt on a 1.6.2 (i386) box.

*** Error code 1

make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/mail/mutt

I'm not worried about the invalid IP business, I figure it's
just unhappy about mismatching A and PTR records, or
something .. but shouldn't the make be able to recognise
a failed download and try from somewhere else, rather than
assume it went ok, and then fail dramatically?
