For external sites, MASTER_SORT works. I have in my mk.conf:
MASTER_SITE_BACKUP= http://ftp.ale.org/pub/NetBSD/packages/distfiles/ \
followed later by (trimmed to only the relative entries):
which will put ftp.ale.org at the top of the list to try first *always*,
regardless of what the package's MASTER_SITES says.
(Incidentally, I actually have ".duh.org" at the top of my MASTER_SORT,
allowing me to add an internal http server for cached distfiles for machines
other than where the cache lives.)
