That isn't really the right fix.  At least unless I'm missing
something in the patch (thanks for the effort, by the way!)

The MASTER site may need this appended, but f.n.o (for example, but
any other mirror too) should retain the file without the appended
string.  So, whatever the fix it needs to be linked to individual
download URLs.
