The above feels kludgy in an individual makefile, but could be
encapsulated in a MASTER_SITE_IS_TRAC macro.

The hardest problem is to get this behavior when downloading from that
site, and the normal behavior when downloading from a regular mirror.
pkgsrc seems to have it wired pretty deep that there are distfiles, and
directory URLs, and that one can combine them.  So that really argues
for a variables that says a particular site is special, and wants a
suffix, and to have the output directed to a different place.
