Is there any way to override the MASTER_SITES (such as on a one-time 
basis) without editing Makefile?

I'd like to set something like:

Or is there any way to make it always use MASTER_SITE_BACKUP?

I have a few sites that are slow or closing a lot and don't want to edit 

Also, it may be nice to allow having multiple local distfile directories. 
I am using a system that has three distfile directories that are not 
shared, but do have some distfiles I could use. Instead of manually making 
symlinks for files, it may be useful to have some pkgsrc setting for 
defining a that multiple distfiles directories are available to look in 
(but only store in one if downloading).
